Best Poem of Steven Federle

Blue Days

Blue Days

Blue days race
to starry nights.

Candles plunge
to panting dreams.

Power is brief.

The mounting sun
with youthful strength
lusts for noon’s brightest heights,

but ennui runs deep and gently receives
the sun’s fading fire,
night’s growing pyre.

Read the full of Blue Days

Unripe Apples Fall

Unripe apples fall
and lie wasting on the ground,
spots spreading into brown,
circles, decaying, waiting
for sun and time to gently take
seminal seeds into the warm earth.

Small birds fall
down low

[Hata Bildir]
