The Blue Moon Review

by Kathryn Stripling Byer

old road dreaming me back home

through coastal plain into the Gulf

stunted pines along the roadside

dripping with dark into night puddles 

arcade of pecan trees into infinity

through which my memory roams

like spider webs over wounds

these bare branches over my eyes

maybe souls do flow into and out of the world--

that crow over corn stubble, scythe of light

off the truck's chrome, swish of an icy 

mare's tail over the December sky

Kathryn Stripling Byer lives in the mountains of western North Carolina. She has published four books of poetry, including Wildwood Flower (LSU) which was the 1992 Lamont Selection of the Academy of American Poets. Her latest is Catching Light, (LSU), a 2002 L.A. Times Book Award nominee. A chapbook, Wake, is due from Spring Street Editions in March.
