THE TRANSCENDENT POETRY OF LINDA FEDERMAN

author-federman

Linda Federman is a wonderful writer who is new to us at Devil’s Party Press.

Here is an excerpt from her poem that appears in Aurora:

SUNRISE COMMUNION

out on the patio 

4 a.m.

surrendered to sleeplessness.

The moon

swollen and lustrous as pearl 

suspended in a periwinkle sky swallowing stars.

Come, the ocean called

from further away

than ears could receive.

But I heard.

Down to the sand

like graham cracker crumbs

tractor-combed furrows anticipating footprints.

Come.

Louder now.

As if the waves were 

crashing 

in my courtyard,

crashing

in my head.

If you like what you’ve read so far, Linda’s poetry can be found in the DPP anthology Aurora, which is also available at Browseabout Books!
