DAWN, WINOOSKI RIVER - painting by Kevin Macneil Brown, watercolor on paper, October 2013.
Old moon, shining, sets.
The opposite sky is steeped in the luminous
blood of new roses.
Last leaves shimmer in hard darkness.
Cold wind, slicing, Pleistoscene
finds long-lost dreams
of flint, fog, footpath;
dark spruce and blue-black
