Poetry Month: Earliest Spring (Sarracino)

Earliest Spring

Only out of the corner of your eye
can you see the shy green
aura around the skeletal trees.

Spirit comes.

Then flesh.

The invisible


– Carmine Sarracino, from The Idea of the Ordinary

Check out a selection of Sarracino’s poetry at his Elizabethtown College page.
