NORTH - Gerður Kristný

Slow as sperm whales
we glide through the gloom
which is white
here on the heath

It holds fast to its own
conceding only
one post at a time

For an instant they flash
on the side of the road
like the little girl’s matches
in the fairytale
lighting us
until we return
to the hole in the ice
to breathe

~Enamored Soul~ said...

I find it to be such a beautiful coincidence that I just recommended "Behind the Beautiful Forevers" by Katherine Boo to "Nishita's Rants & Raves" which is the blog mentioned before you on the list. And an even sweeter coincidence that I've been PINING to read "The Beginner's Goodbye" by Anne Tyler, so I'd love to win/read that one, please.

Thank you for your generosity, and for being part of the Literary Giveaway Hop.
