Redacted Lines

redacted lines
bougainvillea climbs
the trellised wall

in mother’s hope chest
the adoption papers

the smooth sounds
of a French horn…
always, the wolf

even his shadow
tears a canvas moon

wild wind
my hair in flight
with the gulls

mylar ribbons
bind wave to wave

moonlight through lace curtains
stirs the shadows

ghost tree
the bitter wind through
my mother’s bones

Composed September 6 & 7, 2013

Carol Judkins, Carlsbad, California
Deborah Barbour Lundy, Wilson, Wyoming
