Virginian Woman

I carry your song through
Dark winter night into March
Deceptive month!

Clouds stoke the sky
On the shores of Italy, the
Keeper of the lighthouse sends her fragile heart
Into the storm. Her light magnetizes the sunshine
Caught between your wingbeats.

First bunch of flowers
Adobe lace and faded indigo
Red-throated rhythms ring hollow in the air.
