Letters to the Editor

Poem: A Quartet of Alaska Haiku

A wild lonesomeness

echoes off Reflection Lake

red-necked grebes calling.

In the heart of June

I could marry Alaska,

divorce in winter.

Three ravens on snow

a study in black and white

by unknown artist.

A tiny cloud floats

in the late October air,

the breath of a moose.

Aileen Holthaus
