I have decided that music
bears witness to the scenery around us.
A woman wearing a bunny eared winter cap
can listen to “Wild Thing” and “Always a Woman”
and still be focused on serious world issues.
The sounds of Professor Longhair and Dr. John
refresh a winter day of Epiphany just as well as Kings College
A conversation with a beautiful soul
can ignite a fire – for warming a dulled
and calloused heart.
Walking on salted sidewalks
leaves a rhythmic pulse in your brain
with bodhran and guiro contributions.
The sparkle of lights in the darkness
of early morning never grows old. The silence
makes them shine.
The end of the day lingers when you drag out
the last light from inside.
