East Liberty


>>

Axiomatic, your invariable response,
'what is the relevance of here? '

This, sacred sphere in infancy,
a place where perception first saw -
people appeared, nature...things.
Dogs, cats, and gnarly old horses
pulling old-doddering carts
for19th-century bastions;
they, adorning idiomatic garb,
still reminiscent in the 40s.

Stark, emanating character,
nature, and earthy being;
The old Pittsburgh and a regional essence -
a prevailing spirit designated and solely there...
CURIOUS MYSTICAL WONDER; and then...
several years later, and into my 30s,
a vision so singular in character,
an inestimable explosion so overwhelming -
beatific splendor -
I shan't presume and define...
maybe the word...
Ineffable? ...BLISS!

Something QUITE obscure
sublunary and...
insubordinate forces!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
