Solstice Poem

Joan Dobbie

Joan Dobbie co-hosts the River Road Reading Series in Eugene, Oregon, teaches hatha yoga, and finds in poetry (and clay as well) the joy of seeing her subconscious take material form.

Black & white wear
each other's clothes

& the darkest moment
is that moment

when the dark
lets go

The thing to do, I guess,
is love the darkness

Knowing darkness
also disappears

& trust the light
though it comes & goes

& makes
no promises

Read short stories
and poems
