“The Bosphorus” by Sarah Dickenson Snyder

“The Bosphorus” by Sarah Dickenson Snyder

The Bosphorus

 

Along the European edge, the bridges
in suspension—fishermen’s lines slanting

in the darkness until morning
opens restaurants on tops of buildings,

fabric billowing continental swells of scarves
& curtains & flags—all tiled walls in a domed

shadowy balance of sun.
Rumi’s clear water flowing

infinity everywhere—
rippling to Asia.

 

 


Sarah Dickenson Snyder has two poetry collections, The Human Contract and Notes from a Nomad. Poems have appeared recently in The Comstock Review, Damfino Press, The Main Street Rag, Chautauqua Literary Magazine, Piedmont Journal, Sunlight Press, Stirring: a Literary Journal, and Whale Road Review. https://sarahdickensonsnyder.com/
