the aching sweetness of pierce…

in childhood.

Those tears –

in hovered cadence,

epiphanies’ radiance,

beyond the reckoning,
the reasoning
of fractured eyes
and thwarted whys,

bursting up through the belies,

the linguistic instant
of heartfelt cries



(I remember seeing this on television when it was first performed. and the music wrecked me (no pun intended). I am not Catholic, but this small section was my favourite part. For those of you who practice it, God bless your Easter meditations.)

(Just discovered the first video I posted no longer plays here. I found this one but the quality is not nearly as good, unfortunately. The snippet I loved is between 6:50 and 7:35.)

    Children’s tears; they are too often overlooked. You have released them here. It’s good to let them out sometimes. We all have that inner child that wants to be heard. Mine is crying right now for some chocolate

          I am so glad!! I know what you mean, definitely appreciate that in Australia compared to the US. We had a cruise on a friend’s house boat, along the river, with some of their American guests. Absolutely perfect.
          Did you have to go back to work today? Hope it wasn’t too much of a shock to the system if you did 😀
