Owen Lewis wins 3d place prize in The Connecticut River Review 2014 competition

Owen Lewis author of Sometimes Full of Daylight has won a 3d place prize for his poem “What Will Happen In The End”  in The Connecticut River Review 2014 competition judged by Charles Rafferty. The poem will appear in the summer edition, 2015.

What Will Happen in the End

the heron skims the night river
like a single wing
of the moon and the river
comes carpeted

with ice and the heron rims
the river of night, becomes
two wings, now four;
the white wind

careens in cold; white owls
beat the rising wind, the rising
waves break
beyond the discernible

as if the wind
a phosphorescent flood
rushes from the seed
of the heron’s eye
