Sarah James
Small questions of great height Sarah James

“How high is high?” she asks
face tilted up.
I’ve no idea if it’s hills
or sky she means,

or if the question probes deeper.
So I point to the horizon

Small questions of great height, by Sarah James, is one of the poems that didn't quite make the final selection for our current poetry postcards.
