What Really Matters On A Rocky Island

by Caroline Woodward


Let’s not plan a formal luncheon
Hot dogs & buns, just the ticket.
This is the fourth day of sunshine
& it’s January! Rejoice!

So let’s pile high the dry driftwood,
these twigs, those branches, that cedar.
Let’s make a strong hot fire, yes,
& for dessert, some clementines.

Let’s toast both eagles cuddled up
out on the reef towards Japan.
Another toast?
Yes, please.

winter sun
cedar smoke
eagle love
you & me

shining through
