Two Riddles

By Roger Netzer

Migration Issue, Fall 2015

If the past is a time then why is it geography shows the way?
Ancient paths we mapped through mountain laurel remain clear.
They fork and permit passage but lead to some place that now is nowhere.

••

Which is the name
of that rare place
where wings kite and hold the walls of air?
