from Northern Lights (The Fire Sermon) by Andrew Hughes (NOÖ Weekly)

6 Jun

Holy cow I read this thing and I might ramble on and on as to how this chirps a perfect circle of Feeling, how it is sentences attached to sentences digging into itself and I will do no thing other than let this poem speak its own self, be its own self. OH PLZ READ THIS IS A NECESSARY POEM TO FEEL TODAY.

Her voice went on & on

 

blue, with kinds of little stars.
I have been drunk too much

to be this loved. Exhilaration brought
new change, newer terrors. You

surrounded yourself with birds & planted
a marigold in the pot, a

flower thought to be fadeless. I’ve
hidden my notebooks behind a cupboard.

For the first time I breathed
in a place where I felt

 

the expansive but orderly life that
I love. Nothing is to be

rejected in fear or in horror.
