Sample Poem

The following lines from Donna Waidtlow's More Feathers Waiting At My Feet represent the vivid imagery and insight Avocet seeks:

...three quiet gull feathers shaded
cliff-brown to soft-cloud gray
on a bluff above a riotous kelp-bed
of gull song and clam-cracking percussion
a perfect
eagle pinion wedged
between boulders on a rough island coast...
