Poem of the Week: The Coming of Light by Mark Strand via Alison McGhee

Even this late it happens:
the coming of love, the coming of light.
You wake and the candles are lit as if by themselves,
stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows,
sending up warm bouquets of air.
Even this late the bones of the body shine
and tomorrow’s dust flares into breath.

A big thank you to Alison McGhee for curating these beautiful poems.
