Poems by Wendy Mary Lister
 
 
Another Summer—
 
Every leaf is anticipating;
absent without light.
 
It’s a hollow day, connecting city air,
aromas splitting nostrils.
 
A bitter taste leaves the lips,
humidity against the skin;
 
The sky pulling me in,
fatigued-thick,

And I wear it like an old frock;
 
my spirit sulking,
holding-out,
 
until the pulse picks up the blue sky
stretching above the roof tops.
 
Sun rays percolating, wetting-
joyful eyes
 
 
Her Holy Fragrance Held—
 
Burdened air, rearranged ancient light.
Clouding a shadow over the silent tongues
of onlookers.
Tears toppled prayers,
drowning flames,
dismembering centuries:
Theories began to bloom.
A huge gap evolved in hearts,
in the heart of a city, with centuries of
bloodied past—
                                         But, not her
