Poetry Month Spotlight: Believing Their Shadows by Anne Colwell

believingshadowsBelieving Their Shadows is a lovely book of poems by my friend Anne Colwell. Published by Word Press in 2010.

From “Casida of the Lover Looking Beyond New Jersey”

I live in a city whose name

you never imagined.

I walk between the shadow of dogwood

and the shadow of elm,

eight years from the olive grove

where I held your wrist,

crying, fingers pleading with

the secret skin

behind your elbow.
