Whales sing their songs in a sea as beset with engine noise as Internet cacophony to our own brains.
Elk bugle in mountains crisscrossed with contrails, the consequent roar of passing jets.
Miles above to miles below there are no sacred spaces we have not fracked into our colonized world.
Celia Turner is a Loveland published poet in Northern Colorado Writers annual anthology, Poetry Potion and winner of the 2020 Denver Women’s Press Club Unknown Writer’s Contest. She regularly studies poetry, takes workshops and classes. The Grind online practice of a daily poem submitted to a random participating group each month has been a boon. Poetry for her is an ongoing intimate conversation she continues to have with strangers.
