Sneak Peak!

February 5th, 2014  |  Published in Blog


Sneak Peak! Bruce Berger’s Rocky Mountain Poetry Series collection,Waiting for the Raptor, features phenomenal lyrical poetry conjuring vivid images. He allows us to see our familiar world through fresh eyes. Below is a preview of the sublime poetry we can look forward to from Bruce and the rest of our RMPS artists.


I stargazed from my bedroll.
Out of perfect quiet
a rush of living dark
tore through the Milky Way
with muffled wings, a great
shadow wheeled and paused
over my heart, then dropped
earthward till the shriek
of no pale rabbit broke
my breath. The startled owl
slid from our shared panic
and left to silence the icy
scrawl of our galaxy.
