Ed Higgins ~ on bad days

the poem sits there like a daw
scolding the sky, other birds,
me in a winter corner of the garden
of lost language wondering
if crocus will ever seek the light
again through all this cold.

Ed Higgins teaches creative writing and literature at George Fox University, south of Portland, Oregon.
