Curated by Judy Gaudet


Heard throughout the rooms of the house
fingers sound the notes of Haydn’s page,
his form of tones, his gesture, as the ear
attends to luminous sequence which becomes
mind’s cadence.  Time exults.

The kitchen table proffers its colours,
bounteous quotidian accumulation
of what is good lies here and smiles
to be taken, the red of apples, sweet
corn, the striped gloss of mackerel.

Safety against bad luck’s wounds
holds us in its due regard, with gratitude
for doors and windows that close, open
as need be, law seemly or implicit,
humming and sweetness in each mouth.

David Helwig, from Seawrack, Frog Hollow Press, 2014, Read also The Sway of Otherwise, Oberon Press, 2008, and The Year One, Gaspereau Press, 2004 (Atlantic Poetry award).

Island poet and avid poetry reader Judy Gaudet selects a poem by a PEI poet each month.
Judy's latest book is 
Conversation with Crows (Oberon,2014)
