La Follia–Vivaldi

anyone feeling a little baroque today?

this starts
so easily

led carefully
until I am strung
and chorded
in this stormed
follia

inside my breathing
the patterns

layered
in composition
like blood through veins
carries sweet

this
fine threading
in progressive
stitched rhythm

body as instrument
your hands

chording music
to dizziness

I am knit into

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    • Jane, thank you–I am so grateful for your comment, and that you liked my experiment. I might just have to write to baroque music more often, as I really liked the result.

    This was a perfect accompaniment to the music. I’m so glad you included it in your post..

    As a poet…I am Baroque…As a reader of your poems…I am Chopin-ning at the bit for more…as an emotional mess…I am Rach-man-inoff to admit it.

    As a sfam…I’m quite silly.

  5. Delicate stitchery is your gift as Vivaldi! Congrats on your success! Xo
