Today's poem

Although very unfortunate that I can't introduce here my favorite poems "POLLEN" and "THE NIGHT HERON" as Nichola Deane's works in THE RIALTO magazine (issue No. 82, winter 2015) due to copyright, I've continuously read her poems again and again since I first met them. In particular, in the poem "POLLEN" using bees as the theme, I have been inspired by a stanza 'For The Word is no godhead / but so much pollen:'. "THE NIGHT HERON" seems to be a nocturne with a heron that could be seen or unseen and Mark Rothko's abstract paintings. Her poems are picturesque and often deeply philosophical.
