Each Friday we provide the link to the blog that is hosting a celebration of poetry around the blogosphere. At that site you can find the links to the many other blogs that are posting poems (new and old), discussions of poems, and reviews of poetry books.
Enjoy the festivities!
The host this week is Heidi Mordhorst.
You can visit her here at My Juicy Little Universe.
(Backyards, white-line woodcut by Blanche Lazell,
1876-1936, American artist)
Things are getting ready
out of sight.
Stars and moths.
And rinds slanting around fruit.
But not yet.
One tree is black.
One window is yellow as butter.
A woman leans down to catch a child
who has run into her arms
Apple sweeten in the dark.
~ Eavan Boland, born 1944, Irish poet
