Poetry: The House the Spirit Builds by Lorna Crozier

Not a review, but a poem. It’s Lorna Crozier. What more do you need?

Spirit Tree

It’s the tree
the stars find first
(what would nest there?)

the one the child in you
dreams
of climbing

branches so thin
perhaps you’re not

a child yet

but somehow smaller than
a smoky shrew

lighter than an eyelid
on a feathered eye.

From The House the Spirit Builds (Douglas & McIntyre) poems by Lorna Crozier, photography by Peter Coffman and Diana Laundy.

Can be purchased here on Amazon or, better still, beeline to your favorite independent bookseller and order the book if they don’t already have it in stock.
