Hanna Elson


The hopscotch of leaves in my apartment.

Bring sticks for the bonfire. Animal wind-chimes.

A strong hydrangea, a delicate man.

Somewhere in the grass
lies the promise of adulthood

gold and green,
something to run over,
then put under glass.

This field is miles wide,
miles older than us.

Hanna Elson is a writer from New York State. She studied poetry at SUNY New Paltz. Her work has been published in Breaking Ground Magazine and Magpie's Nest.
