Basket (Kimberly Callas, Gary Lawless)

Basket offers
the arms of the plant world
to hold you secure and
at rest, dreaming
in three worlds at once -
below the surface
at the surface
above the surface
breathing darkness, air
and light


breath of a wind from
another world -
cold air from
deep space through
the Pleiades, Sisters
give you a dream, say
here, hold this, fill
your basket your
emptiness here -

If you would like a free copy of our chapbook Basket, Notes Toward a Field Guide" with poems, drawings and notes from the collaboration, please email your mailing address to chimfarm@gwi.net .

Beautiful poem,
great collaboration . . .

Just watched a spider
subdue the last fly in our house --

"cold air from
deep space" indeed --

Emily Dickinson's many
worlds as nests
