rock & sun

Kate Shannon

smoother of river stones:

you are the slow water that fractures

red desert solitude and teaches me wanting;


there are secrets 

between the breaking rapids 

of your fingertips:


i would learn all of your droplets,

all of your molecules

and sunsets.

Avid hiker trash, Kate Shannon hails from her mountain cubby in Upstate New York where she is a hapless environmentalist in these trying times. She writes work with themes tending towards the natural.
