Issue 9 :: Summer 2007

Janet Butler

patchwork: Tuscan hills

plump fields meet in quilted disarray
fragments limned by penciled shadows
scraped and raked
sown and grown
by desires of kaleidoscopic precision
visions brooding
in moist warm earth
a laborious birth
brought forth
by kneading hands
that ravish the lands, tenderly.
