A gift of Island poetry: Diane Morrow

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

LOON

The single lovely bird
in this sudden pond
beside the bike trail
startles.

Yes, it has the checkerboard back,
wide neck, definitely
not a cormorant.
I’ve never been this close to a loon before.

Its red eye
fixes me
before it flies.

I pedal away
blessed to be
its only human witness.

I, Samantha, Take This Mortal, Darrin

Adam-Michael James

Television’s supernatural sitcom, Bewitched, is getting a wrap-up 45 years after it went off the air. In the show’s original 1964-1972 run, the tale of witch Samantha Stephens and her mortal husband Darrin ended on what might be called a “regular” episode, since series finales were not commonplace for long-running shows like they are today. Now, author Adam-Michael James gives

RED Magazine # 15

This latest issue of RED says “so long” to two great stalwarts of PEI history. 

Father Francis Bolger might very well be regarded as the generating force of the great explosion of Island historical writing that has taken place over the past 50 years in this province.

THE SHAPE OF YOU

At first you were scraps
and fractals of form.
I would sleep and dream
fragments of laughter,
part of a smile, a glimpse
of your parting heels,
the fabric of a skirt.
Through time there whirled
a kaleidoscope of fractured forms,
a myriad of colours, gradually
slowing and settling into
momentarily stable shapes,
lines, curves, angles, slopes,
all in warm motion,
