It feels like the true beginning of summer. The public schools have ended or are almost over depending on where you live. The heat and humidity have settled in and the long twilight hours are a welcome respite from the heat of the day. The air has been so thick it felt like we could have caught the light with a butterfly net. It's hard to imagine that the days won't just get longer and more languid."There were days when we could catch light in a butterfly net."
--Richard Jackson, from "That's What I'm Talking About," Resonance: Poems (Ashland Poetry Press, 2010)
