Poetry by Jess Morton


Through the windows in the back door
I saw the earth made new once more.

This morning the carpenters were early
packing chisels of fog, hammers of ice.

I could see everywhere the bare walnut trees
had shared in the work before sunrise.

Dawn shapes dark in the ice-tooled filigree
drew the limbs out of night onto gray skies.

Nowhere did the trees end, nor the fog begin
only the least glow bringing the day in.
