The Heartland

The Heartland is starry tonight

while the rest of the world

lies buried in white drifts

spiraling out of a gray sky.

But our sky is deep blue, dark and pure,

made of suffering . . .

–Excerpt from “The Heartland” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago, 2016). First published in Homestead Review.
