Scattered Aubade
by Gillian Prew

 

December’s cut, sun-up/

123456789winter’s day-bud.

 

Snow-bite/

1234567trees an avenue of bones/

1234567their last leaves

123456789012like skin leaving light.

 

12345White,

1234567a chain of wings/

12345678901234a luminous edge.

 

Morning-song a ballad of glass.

 

12345678Silvery,

12345678day breaks

 

loose and ecstatic –

an open throat of notes/

 

1234567890123456789a ghost.
