Stevieslaw: Centered Magazine

Once a quarter, I will help choose a poem for Centered Magazine.  For the Autumn issue, Sarah Russell’s fine poem “I lost Summer Somewhere” appeared.  Stay tune for a prompt for Winter and if you are in the Centre Region (PA) make sure to pick up a copy of Centered.


I lost summer somewhere


in the wildflowers, woke
to trees blushing at my disregard,
wind hurrying the clouds along.
I should have seen the signs.
I watched geese abandon their twigged
April nests, pin-feathered goslings
ripple ponds listless with July. Now they rise
gray against the gray sky, skeining south
before first snows.

I’ll stay here, I tell them. I’ll air out
cedared cardigans, chop carrots
for the soup tonight, cross
the threshold of the equinox,
try not to stumble.
