Poet Mark Stratton

Poem for Japan

The music of children playing
A smile warms my face

Vibrant blues stretch for
Deepening reds on arms

Cardinal hiding in a bush
Flew there ‘pon approach

Crows circling high above
Lazing through the summer sky

Cool of the evening
Ending a summers day

Mark Stratton is the editor of
