SHADOWS LIGHT, poetry and sculpture, by Ann Elizabeth Carson.   " Through poignant imagery grounded in daily life the poet confronts the silences and we fall wholly into uncensored emotion." Jan Bailey, American Poet, author of Midnight in the Guestroom, Paper Clothes.

November/ silence
                                                                     
My voice moves from silence

to silence   in between

bird sounds  children's noises

machines humming

the traffic of everyday.


 
But the window waits

to be broken

into.

The door flaps open,

longing

to be locked

again
