I write and publish my poetry first on Instagram. Then on Sundays, I post the poem that received most likes or comments here on my blog. Below is my most popular Instagram poem this week, “Long Light”.
It’s a short one–worth reading twice.
LONG LIGHT Every light creates a shadow, the stars can’t shine without the night. Seek to muffle up your sorrow: feel life fade inside and out. Loose it. Let it sear you hollow, prise you open, clear your throat. Long light lives by grace of shadow. The stars are pleased to shine through night.
