The view from Lummi Island ~ photo by Luther Allen

chopped marching scumble of silvergrey
stretches to a long thin layer
of deathdark smudged leadengrey
out to the lighted thread of horizon

          the hulk of matia
          an intense scraped dark void in the lightscreen
          leading to a drooping sky of
          stacked and bulging mammarous pulses

over-filled, dripping
the wet of the vast
warm and far
pacific
