A Compilation of Gratitude
The pure blue color of the cover image for an Arvo Paert compilation
Music itself, clear like a cloudless sky at sunset
The purely sung Latin texts Paert uses–
Even without church, the weekend is redeemed by them.
Without solitude, no enjoyment
Without community, no solitude
Without these, the blues.
(Are you disappointed at such an obvious word-play?)
A haiku for you, then:
Pure blue sky petals
Float in the rainy wind of
Late winter in spring.
