Poetry by Akka from Lee (Snackamain)
…I went back and looked at Akkas glorious emails and created these poems straight from her writing, with very little editing. Lisa Cupolo – Bausch
Oiseau at Lake Superior By Akka Janssen (Lisa Cupolo) I am that person howling with you at the moon Yet we couldn't see it, we didn't move one step. That was you too on those rocks looking out over Superior taking your clothes off and jumping in. We're still there, an invisible string, A straight line connecting us to it, Think of the thousands of lines connecting us to every point and every person we've ever been.
I See Such Beauty By The River By Akka Janssen (Lisa Cupolo) A big blue heron soaring on its mighty wings, a beautiful brilliant red cardinal couple swaying on the stalks of the tall tawny grasses by the river bank, gold finches flitting, canada geese zooming across the surface of the river--pumping hard. and all the colours of winter. so muted and yet so alive. Alfred’s Canoe by Akka Janssen (Lisa Cupolo) He has a canoe. little spontaneous adventures I texted him before the full moon ‘let's go see moon rise on the river.’ The day after the full moon was out-of-this-world beautiful Both shores of the river sparkling with fireflies the reflection of the trees in the water in the dusky twilight I was floating in air. A heron, every now and then, swoosh up and out The tall dark grasses along the shores. Bullfrogs doing their baritone thing. And the moon, sweetie! The open water just as the moon was rising! Big and yellow. Feels like a magical kingdom at times. Akka and Lee when she was visiting from California on March 25.
