A Poem by Michael Lee Johnson


Saskatchewan Sky

Saskatchewan
sky,
just a preview of love,
chip off
an edge of
prairie
chip an edge off
winter--
and opening
multiple eyes
toward spring.
They--lovers, find themselves
near evening bush fire--
great seal fish and open lake,
cuddle together--
so wonderful together--
where she comes from,
where did she go to
from here.
