Midnight Blueberries - Poem by Linda Hepner

Midnight blueberries
are how I think of you
and when, and what

and then I think of where
you are, in darkness
next to me, both sweet
and tart.

    I love the way that one image of deliciousness folds over into quite another. (Report)Reply

    This is lovely; the 'figure' of darkness, the one 'next to me' & the blueberry combine with subtely, power & grace. An impressive poem. (Report)Reply
