EAGLE'S PERCH



Blue

There is the ample door 
           to heaven
we anticipate to pass through
           after a lifetime of good
and there is the blue heron
           that bathes and stalks
a secluded pond
           for sanctuary.

"In these poems, Mr Keshigian offers us a fresh, penetrating insight into the conflux of
mind and nature; his observations reify old themes, making the tarnished bright again.
The morning call of a loon, the brush of wind across a field, all come again new,
reimagined for us, in fresh, spare language. No ornate circumlocutions here, rather
the direct open diction one finds in the best of the Russian lyric poets. By examining
the local, the personal, he calls up the underlying general truths; all in all,
a very satisfying collection of poems."
