Micro Poem 16

Night

was first

a cold, bitter coffee

until granules of stars

poured

and made it

a hot, sweet midnight

  2. A very beautiful poem. Wonderful use of the English language as metaphor. This poem reads very precisely, elegantly, line by line to its sweet ending. “granules of stars” – amazing! More please.
