Norita Dittberner-Jax's third collection of poetry, "The Watch", is now available for readers. Focusing on the triumph and tragedy of the human experience, Norita brings readers long, flowing verse, sure to entertain and enlighten. "The Watch" is worth a consideration from any long time poetry lover. "The Boat": We slip through the darkness, feeling in the boat's rocking/the heaviness of water, under us, around us;//a halo of light in the west, the barest of moons,/ the least moon possible.//Docks already gone to darkness, houses barely visible, but the lives lived there stand in clear panes of light.//We are four friends, two marriages, taking a turn/on the lake. The wind blows up a fierce smell of water and fish.//We are quiet, surrounded by water, rocking/ in the darkness of the boat, frail as moths.
