Daily Opera

author's note:

Full disclosure: so far, I'm not too much of an opera fan.

But I do like the idea of opera...the idea of life amplified to its true grandness.


As I open to the dawn...

from the beast of instinct tamed
there comes a breast song--

all else in the room responds--
a booming chorus:

suddenly I'm in a world of opera--

every day: an opera...rising

with the sun, the heat...

then exhaling

with the cool sunset

then lifting again--softly

with the moon...

all the way to the echoing stars.
