Katherine Noone, In That Moment

In That Moment

I know
heaven is not beyond the clouds,
but here in my room.

Your face calm, compassionate
as it was
so many years ago.

Then daylight and birdsong
burst in,
lure you away.

Katherine Noone’s first poetry collection, Keeping Watch, was published by Lapwing Press in February 2017. Her poems have appeared in Orbis, Crannóg, Boyne Berries and Linnets Wings, among others. She attends the advanced poetry workshop in the Galway Arts Centre.
