dusk carries the lone
rattle
         calling
       all
      to gather

joining
at the right shade
of curtain

       voices
carrying
    the word

        the word that
humans
     tried
        to conjure
around fire

-a circle of eyes
and blurred arms

transporting time

-the word
      of an organ
under Bach's fingers

pale
    moonshadows
of this

      the original

I hear tonight

I wonder
if it is
the rehearsal

     the angels warming up
their lips...


           The earth
                  will
                       vibrate
in
ecstatic
    expectancy

thank you...
          rare are the times
                        when the music is so

softly played...

                     that the angels cry....

Bri...you have no idea,
[which is a cliche in itself]
how much this feels to me...

Bri . . .
you must listen to Verdi
Requiem

the angels sing a much different tune
pure beauty
this and that

thank you

I was just listening to the August bugs
singing
bouncing parts around like
some minimalist composer

gets to sounding like breathing after awhile

It's funny that you say like breathing, because that's what I was thinking when I looked at the poem as a whole.  The asthetic quality lends itself to a soft low rhythm - I really enjoyed that paired with the poem itself.

psh - you get inspired listening to bugs.  I have to beg and bribe my muse.  whatever.

It's beautiful poetry but I still don't understand the title.  This, the original... heh... the symphony of sound.  Nicely written, Mr. Sites...

When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.

Ya know...I already thought this was amazing, and then
I read of your inspiration...and I was reminded...that you?...are truly beautiful.

Love this, Brian...

How did I miss this?

knowing now that you construct these instinctively, I'm more amazed than ever was at how profoundly the construction adds depth and layered meaning to the words.

You ARE a madviking genius...

or would that be?

"you
      ARE

   a    
mad   viking
genius..."

Glad Kacy bumped this as I had not seen it before.  I love the line breaks you use Brian, they add so much to the reader.  Hey, how's about a new poem, too busy over summer?

Well, I happen to know that Bri has had trouble logging in--prolly 'cause he lost his password and changed e mails addresses since then.

I can prolly persuade him to write an administrator for help tho.

I TOLD him ya'll missed him!

Lovely... nobody doesn't like a fugue.. especailly when there's poetry like this to accompany it.

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

This stunning poem is no exception to the general rule....when I read a poem of yours, I always find myself reading it several times through. Never fails!

I was fussin' at him just last week, kace.

and hey you--check your e mail.

You inspired a story outta me. (I know it's not bri's poetry, but it's the best I can do until I can try to make Bri's fingers pick up a pen again.)

Ain't he beautiful?
