Saturday Poetry Blogging

Night in Day
~ Joseph Stroud

The night never wants to end, to give itself over
to light. So it traps itself in things: obsidian, crows.
Even on summer solstice, the day of light's great
triumph, where fields of sunflowers guzzle in the sun--
we break open the watermelon and spit out
black seeds, bits of night glistening on the grass.

Brillant choice! And so right for Summer Solstice! We are already in the deep heat here in Dallas!
