Poem of the Day: “Fire Orbs” by Sierra July, Frequent Contributor & Poet of the Week
Songs of Eretz Poetry Review is pleased to present “Fire Orbs” by Sierra July, a Songs of Eretz Frequent Contributor and this week’s Poet of the Week. A biography of the poet may be found in our “About Our Editor & Frequent Contributors” section.
His eyes are suns,
The pupils coal,
Irises invaded by embers,
Sparking, sharp, like knives against flint
Fury, void, flames swim there.
Poet’s Notes: Looking at a picture of the sun conjured up this image. The metaphor “His eyes burned with fury,” also helped.
