Have a summerful day.

You should read more poetry. (Meaning, I should!)

It’s like living in a light bulb, with the leaves
Like filaments and the sky a shell of thin, transparent glass
Enclosing the late heaven of a summer day, a canopy
Of incandescent blue above the dappled sunlight golden
     on the grass...

From Sally’s Hair by John Koethe

Doesn’t that make the picture so clear in your mind, of lying back on a lounge chair outside, looking up through the leaves on the trees, to the sunny sky?

Sure, this is the last week of August, but it’s not too late! Get out there and see what poetry you can find…
