Poet Ann Spiers lives on Vashon Island under Puget Sound’s rainy skies and rich beaches and bogs. She is the island’s inaugural poet laureate. She co-authored the guide book, Walks, Trails, and Parks of Vashon Island. Her chapbooks include What Rain Does (Egress Studio), Long Climb into Grace (FootHills), and Bunker Trail (Finishing Line). These four poems with icons are from a poetry cycle, Weather Station, that uses international weather and other visual symbols as titles for poems considering change in the physical, cultural, and personal world of water. “No Clouds,” Stratocumulus…,” “Ground Flooded,” “Clouds Dissolving.”
