A Message from the Winged Sisters

A solitary songbird chirps in the paned glass

As if to participate in our celebration

To call us to attention

To ground us in focus and clarity

The chirping mechanizes

And the angels speak through the pipes

“The birds were created for a singular task

To emanate the sound of joy

“Through the grace of music

We mimic the birds

We mimic so that you may remember

So you know why you are here

“You never stop to listen to them

But they are always teaching

Their lesson is simple and absolute:

There is joy in love

Keep your heart light,

Like our soft feathers

And remember that you came to teach

That only love is real.”

Limitless Artistry

Ivory hands caress the soil

With tenderness and femininity

Co-authoring the scenery of life

What blooms later sustains us

Jet black corkscrews wrapped in satin

Razor blades and a steady grip

Restoring confidence in the despondent

Embracing the exterior pulchritude

Words with the weight of a roaring sea

Mightily cast to millions of devotees

Inspiring one foot in front of the other

Teaching us of our particularity

Jocularly observant and ironic

Droplets descending down the cheek

Jovial pains wildly shake the belly

As laughter delights in the present

Imagination alters the once barren landscape

Reaching skyward beyond the treetops

Beaming edifices boldly towering

Supplying shelter to embodied spirits

To each their own kind

But every kind essential

Not a solitary soul misplaced

Each one purposeful and enriching
