Anticipation

Outside my window the world is hovering
on hummingbird wings beating such a quick time
it’s as if it’s standing still, holding its breath
until it lets go and roars and batters through
this still scene with snow flying and winds baffling
the house, the garden disappearing in a blind
whirling robe of white fire. The geranium, the begonia,
David and Star and I stand watch at the window,
grateful our house is standing quiet, holding steady.
Our house nestled in the village, our village nestled
in farmland, our land nestled in the inlet, in the strait,
in the Gulf, H²0 risen up and returned in the wind
as white curtains billowing at the window.

—Judy Gaudet. Conversation with Crows (Oberon Press) and 150+: Canada’s History in Poetry (Acorn Press, 2018) are Judy’s two most recent collections.

PEI poet laureate Deirdre Kessler selects a poem a month by an Island poet for readers of The Buzz.
