The Blakeley Blog

The Blakeley Blog is a forum for discussion and discovery of the incredible natural and cultural treasures found at Historic Blakeley State Park.

Many of the poems in the Blakeley Blog by Sue Walker appeared in an earlier version in In The Realm of Rivers, published by NewSouth Press in Montgomery Alabama.

Beyond Translation

Say cielo, ciel, suty— 
spirit and breath. 
Speak sky 
and add what cumulus means 
in any tongue. Add the stretch 
of a river's blue meandering. 
Find solace in the movement 
of a marsh, in the reach of trees 
peering into water 
as it releases reflections. 

Delta, run wide, 
knowing that Nature has answers 
beyond translation
