Three Poems from A.J. Huffman



Arctic Butterflies

Portraits of fragility echoing definitive
definitions of strength spread
their darkened wings, gather sun’s warmth.
Dorsal basking, lateral basking, mid-flight V,
every move is designed to harvest heat
as they flutter and dance their way across
summer fields, becoming, in visitor’s minds,
flash-bulb moments of nature’s possibilities.





from Flamingo this Vision

of self-containment, internal
flight.  Movement stifled, re-routed,
released in flutter of pink
feathered eyes seeing beyond
sky.  Balance
can be extended.  One leg
bending between two planes.





Hosak’s Cave

A crack of light,
of life, brown but not out
of the cycle. 
The walls are breathing,
breeding
a carpet fit for the king
of beasts.
