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