In the Park by Kersten Christianson

Deer heart pulsates, a
measured silent beat under
stands of Sitka spruce,
yellow cedar.  Sweet ferns whirl,
pirouette in the wild wind.

Kersten Christianson is a raven-watching, moon-gazing Alaskan. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing (University of Alaska Anchorage), has authored two books of poetry - What Caught Raven’s Eye (Petroglyph Press, 2018) and Something Yet to Be Named (Aldrich Press, 2017) – and is the poetry editor of Alaska Women Speak.
