Route 7 Review - Page 65

Flight BY M.S. Rooney A barn owl flies north, belly white with moonlight, heart-shaped face scanning for movement, for sound, for flesh, unconcerned with me, with my eyes following what looks so like pure freedom, pure and random love of flight. M.S. Rooney lives in Sonoma, California with her husband, poet Dan Noreen. Her work appears in journals, including BLUESTEM, THE CORTLAND REVIEW, ILLUMINATIONS, MAIN STREET RAG, THEODATE, and 3:AM MAGAZINE, and anthologies, including AMERICAN SOCIETY: WHAT POETS SEE, edited by David Chorlton and Robert S. King (FutureCycle Press). Her work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
