4 Notes

Starting this year’s picnic mix earlier than usual


Twilight, then early evening. Fireflies / in the room, flickering here and there, here and there, / and summer’s deep sweetness filling the open window. // Don’t think of these things anymore. / Listen to my breathing, your own breathing / like the fireflies, each small breath / a flare in which the world appears.
Louise Gluck, “Lullaby”
