i could spend seventeen lifetimes listening to the jennys perform "arlington."




for nicky mehta

bright morning star

your voice       your vision

holier than churchspires

 

winter benediction

pristine grace

december's freshest snowfall

 

your soul       your song

a tender-feathered sparrow

on the flurry-dusted berrybranch

 

rilke's staunch leaf

withstanding arctic wind

“your song
a tender-feathered sparrow
on the flurry-dusted berrybranch”

This thought and phrase is simply.... magnificent! It’s a poem within a poem and a painting of exquisite imagery.
