Early Morning

9 June 2019

By Philip Kuepper

The silver light
hammered silver the river,
silvered the rower
who slid to a halt to catch
his breath, north of the Seaport,
south of I-95.  The light
turned white-gold the evergreens.
The leaves of maples shined,
high as the whine of a saxophone.
A jay sang the blues
through the blue-silver air.
The rower pulled back on his oars,
and slipped into motion,
motion awash with light,
liquid as mercury.
Then the sun rose full
in an explosion of gold.
