This is a beautiful and haunting poem of war and desire. Christopher Howell, who lives in Spokane, Washington, is a widely published, widely traveled and much honored poet whose works reflect the human experience with all its loneliness and beauty, love and desolation. His poems touch the chord of reflection and quiet we experience in rare moments of aloneness.
