2011-Poem: A Brief Ode to the Mother-land by Katie Anderson

Each piece and color
a complement of complexities
compels me to call to you
Shine down on me
through the brightest rays
of blood and amber


Mother of implorable wisdom
whose symphony of tears scatters wide
like jewels of the roughest mines
the planar mirror of heaven’s starlit embrace.

by Katie Anderson
