Love Song … for Denise and Armando

Image

Only the first verse had been written , three years ago when I watched them perform together on the stage  on Orcas Island … he on his guitar and she with her soprano voice . They moved the room and applause spread  like ink spilled on paper … as I trembled …  I hope we  will once again listen to them perform , now that the song has been finished.

I saw them

a crown upon their head

a wing on her shoulder

flight on his brow

a goddess of wine

a man in his youth

drunk on the olive of her skin .

Image

I saw them

a crown upon their head

with baby come forth

eyes of a doe

a mother of grace

a man on his journey

drunk on the olive of newborn skin .

Image

I saw them

stars upon their heads

a cloak of purple

wrapped golden round three

a woman of love

a man and his music

drunk on the beauty of life .

Song completed … January 2014 … meg dickerson

  1. Their song over. New ones for them each somewhere begun. Maybe in their babies. Maybe in the wind. Who knows where love takes one. In which direction the tides will come. It was a beautiful song in it’s day. Maybe that’s all that was there to last in the end. A song! Even that now gone. Is life everlasting and impermanent all at once?
