What an eerily beautiful poem from Michael Lyle, the author of the poetry chapbook, The Everywhere of Light (Plan B Press, 2018). A sense of loss shimmers through these images. Michael’s poems have appeared widely, including The Carolina Quarterly, The Hollins Critic, Mudfish and Plainsongs. He lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
