Issue 6: David Filer

by Paula Lietz

from Weather Notes
-- Portland Oregon

blue sky  February
even the east
wind   stops
to look

suddenly  everyone is

looking at spades


at the ground

hope rises it
has been held   down
so long

a voice  in that
brief  bright

a different day
a different light

happiness lasts
that   instant

David Filer lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife Marlene Anderson, who created and directs The Imani Project, an AIDS prevention and orphan support program in eastern Kenya. He has recent work in Third Wednesday, Slant and Red River Review, and has authored two chapbooks: Night Verse (Finishing Line Press 2005) and The Landscape There (Stone City Press 2009).
