SONG OF THE LIVING
SONGLINES REMAIN IN OUR SKIN OF DREAMS
even when the strings of life are cut via Fates
as unpredictable as Age/and subsequent deterioration
Remember them as you were and they were-
young enough to tilt@wildmills/and foolish fond enough
to be tilted back out of their skin.It is not the leaving,nor our loss
that is consequential-it is the foundation of harmonies
we build our lives upon-each bass line,every lovely lyric
that saves our daily domestic doings from dull prose
and transports us to Parnassus,where the Muse
has a million tongues of burning flame
and scorches us with fiery truths..
Keep The Fires Burning In Your Arts!
