The occasional blink or glow that dots our eyes
and echoes light in ink-filled summer skies.
Random, flighty bugs go back and forth,
never staying long upon the earth.
Poetry resides in likened states
upon the page, lying there in wait.
Until the dusk of summer’s memory comes
flitting in our minds and waiting on our tongues.
Then off the paper, wisping as it’s read,
circling ’round our voices, resting in our head.
The instant blink or glow that passes in our eyes
then echoes light amid the ink-filled skies.
