Two Poems by Duane Locke

TERRESTRAIL ILLUMINATION, NO. 179

I was born on a farm.
At four I was forced to live in city.
I wanted to stay on farm,
To see every morning a green heron atop
The new green, sunlit-brightened green
New growth of a pine.

Now aged, I observe a farm, airplane, poison,
Tractor, treeless, no pines, and the urban life of farmers.
Although I never liked where I was,
I now understand the farm is no place to desire.



TERRESTRAIL ILLUMINATION, NO. 180

Old gold that spreads over fallen pine,
Now crumbled into loose piles
Of blonde and beige wood,
You and your splendor was brought
To my attention by the arrival
Of a false-eye, black beetle.

I should call this small beetle,
True professor or true priest, for this beetle
Has revealed the sacred and enchantment,
The old gold that covers the decaying pine.
