Steven Federle Poems
Blue Days Blue days race to starry nights.
Leap of Faith
You've decided that you want me, and so commanded flashing angels
Running all the way, bent double in breathless pain we peer and see the gaping grave
ancient lake spirit of glacier, waves recede
Abaude: Morning Rain
Living trees, grass rising from dark cool soil Roses, like blood from a wound
Just before nightfall your new leaves softly sway in the cool delta breeze,
In Arching Waters
In arching waters the black bird dances with graceless step, head jerks, probing soft soil,
Wind - Chimes
Wind-chimes clamor in the night. Breezes rush through unseen leaves.
Over bright fields we fly. Thin slips
Simplicity of being
'....it is of the very essence of Christianity to face suffering and death not because they are good, not because they have meaning, but because the resurrection of Jesus has robbed them of their meaning." Thomas Merton *********
You breathe, and my lungs rise and fall like winter trees swaying, sure of spring,
And Fell The Crane
rising high godlike I gazed from where cranes fly unconcerned, over
See the perfect sky of November cloudless, cool, southern sun, garden of blue eternity
Deep thunder shakes this warm July evening
and lightning flashes over the waterfront
filling the clear, starry sky with acrid clouds and glimmering rain
falling to the water as children gaze
in shock and awe,
waiting for the next big one to explode.
False bombardment as celebration:
