My story takes place on a train and describes a meeting between strangers and includes a mysterious cat.

An Interview with Barbara Turney Wieland


City break

I think the colour of my eyes

has changed. Look at me

Face to face with the open air

They’ve moved from cloudy to blue

They’ve transitioned from woman to girlish

They’ve settled to clear from guarded

Hazel reflected stillness, purpose, simplicity, dotted with lambs and lushness

In the space of just a season on the farm

Under the same sun. My face is open

to the air, which is fair, I think

I’ve changed my vision.
