yarmouth library ekphrasis

Mountfort Ridge, painting by Susan Carter

We quarry Light from Stone

Trees becoming ghosts
becoming mist
becoming spirit
(where do their spirits go
when forests die)
trees becoming light, here, shadows
becoming rock
blue across snow
stone below
becoming light

What is happening to these trees
What is happening to these trees

granite, dreaming.
