Maya: poems for the summer solstice

A Poetry Chapbook by gillian harding-russell

We pushed our way through the shoulder-high city
of purple and white and yellow vetch filling
a green cosmos with dazzling noonday stars
between queer suns of mauve thistle
bristling silver among the bearded grasses
alive with insects, ants crawling up the tower
of stalks and down without toppling,
grasshoppers jumping out
at our elbows like bullets.

from “Cosmos of field, yesterday…”

gillian harding-russell was raised in St Jean, Quebec, attended McGill (B.A. and M.A.) and completed her Ph.D. at the University of Saskatchewan. I forgot to tell you (Thistledown, 2007) was her third full-length poetry collection. The chapbook Apples and Mice (Alfred Gustav Press) came out in 2008, and the holm Stories of Snow (Alfred Gustav) came out in 2011 (excerpts will be reprinted in the online journal Goose Publications.
