Lone Crow

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

last scribbled note from you

tucked inside my prayer book

a gentle reminder— love is

stronger than death



Losing Texas #1

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

Rolling slowly across the

grey tarmac, sunset—

past glimpses of green pine,

grazing cows, barbed-wire fences

      the ache of leaving  

blazing yellow orb

in blood-streaked sky

      the place ascends



what is the cost

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

what is the cost

of this lost land?

more than blood,

history or beauty

or anyone's broken

        heart



Poignant Clouds

 

(for Daryl)

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

poignant clouds hovering

together in the Northwest sky

holding the crimson blush

of a hailstorm many miles away

 

 

giant cottonwood tree

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

giant cottonwood tree

it’s sheltering arms

holding winds, sun, shade

resting flocks of sparrows

branches are weeping now

the ground covered with

hundreds of golden leaves



great orange orb

 

by Judith Nielsen

 

 

great orange orb

announces sunset

casts magical shadows

thru smoke clouds

floating across the

beautiful poisonous sky

 

 

Following a trail of words, mountains, spirit and tears, this writer, mother, wife, and eventually psychoanalyst left Texas for Colorado in 1985. The land of the Arapahoe welcomed Judith Nielsen and called her by name. The love of poetry, poet, and high mountain valleys has warmed her heart and made her home. Freud said, “Everywhere I go, the poet has been there before me.” May we keep following those footsteps on our paths through the worlds. This contributor has taught contemplative psychotherapy at Naropa University, practices psychoanalysis, and writes poetry.
