Eclipse – a poem by Anabell Donovan


In the slow dripping of
rainmakers and begetters,
fog rises,
wet drifting,
into rounded contours.

The renegade jaguar abandons
his cardinal corner of the world,
from shadow cloud to shadow cloud,
wreaking havoc amongst startled stars.

The edges of the world tremble,
slender tree trunks shed
festive skins
and stand pale and huddled
as the earth tilts.
