by Elaine Verdill

Night sky without stars
without stars and wind that's
rimmed dark and blue
prairie in the silence
holding the summer storm without stars.

Elaine Verdill lives in Colorado where she works at JILA, an interdisciplinary institute for research and graduate education in the physical sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her own photos are on exhibit there. She has published poetry in Poetry Nottingham, Voices International, and Illuminations.
