Mission: Poetry, Photography, Works on Paper

« March Arts Marathon is a fundraiser for Asylum Seekers Assistance Network (ASAN), a project of CVRAN. The work of ASAN is to get asylum seekers out of detention and resettled in Central Vermont. We are already supporting a family of four and plan to take in other asylum seekers this year. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for legal bonds, living expenses, and lawyers’ fees. March Arts Marathon is a community effort: Every day in March, poets and writers and artists and photographers will each send a piece of work to friends and family. And friends and family will donate to support this work. Together we will be helping to welcome new Americans who in turn will add immeasurably to our own communities. »

Golden Sands

Golden sands travelled
Rose in the winds

They blew two
Thousand miles
Thousand kilometers

From the Sahara desert to Switzerland

Floating so many on the wind
They turned the skies

A shade of yellow
Like a summer storm
Before the lightening

Saved in a little jar
Reminiscing, love
Of a trip
A token returned
Still here
Forty years
Her teenage years
When the snow turned gold
