as grand as a star?”

            [wpcf-summary-description] => Ross Sutherland says: Great use of dialogue here, which gives Adriana some extra maneuverability inside the poem. I love the combination of “grabs a branch” with “draws a path”, which seems to arrive so effortlessly, you forget the constraint altogether (I think that’s always a good sign!). Similarly, “a black sky / that clasps many stars” is wonderful. There’s something about the use of the ‘A’ sound throughout his poem that creates an atmosphere of wonder and awe. Maybe it’s that switch from playing in the dust to gasping at stars… it makes me think of the way that children can behave like the whole universe is within their control. It makes me like this poem a lot.

Parva Ava

Adriana Pallero

A warm and calm May day
Ava grabs a branch and plays
Draws a path and says
‘Ha, that’s Ava’s way!’

Day falls fast and
Ava gasps
At a black sky
that clasps many stars

“Why, can a man stand
as grand as a star?”
