NaPoWriMo April 7: Gratitude

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.
