B. Fulton Jennes

Into light all things must fall

          after Jane Kenyon

In the end will the light

rush up to meet me

like the waters

of Toddy Pond when

I flung myself into blue

that summer—fear-

inflamed    heart-halted

but willing    so willing

to fall into

a softer world

B. Fulton Jennes’ poems have appeared widely in literary journals and anthologies, including CALYX, Rust & Moth, SWWIM, and Tupelo Quarterly.
