Read Poem: How to Write a Summer Poem, by Marta Knobloch

Slip time from your wrist.

Feel the pulse of the day become your heartbeat.

Curl into the nutshell of this moment.

Float on a sea-glass sky.

Breathe July’s green sweat.

Bathe your eyes in shadows.

Grow deaf to the thrumming of bees.

Watch a breeze stir ripples in your nether-mind.
