Anthem in Black and Blue

~~~~~ Watching the blue of heaven fall, neon hue slipping down the wall. Canvas flags flutter, angel wings reflecting the glory of the sound. You wonder about divine choirs Unsure of what they might sing? As names and voices are shared. This magic of a sacred moment, renders our songs celestial fair, with power that […]

Three X Six X How

~~~~~ Surrounded by silence Within the cacophony we create, How can we hear the bee is absent?
