Where May Becomes June

After a while
the blackbird fell silent

When she next looked up
from the laptop, what passed
for darkness in a northern summer
had settled behind a much stronger light
now from the slow-moving moon

Hi,

What a nice poem...how it gets quiet after "the blackbird fell silent"

and the subtle rhyming--laptop/looked up, June/moon....

This is the way night does not come in a northern summer. Very nicely stated.

Goodness-- visitors to this abandoned outpost of civilization.

We are preparing for darkness now -- give it a month and there may be a November poem with blackbirds flown south to you guys (yes, even Kitchener is south)
