starry child of earth

"dawn of a new era" quilt work by elaine quehl

a few years ago - on a whim - i took apart a pablo neruda poem, selecting those phrases that spoke to me and reassembling them into a poem that also spoke to me.

(pablo neruda deconstruction)
starry child
of earth,
as lascivious velvet,
and full of wonder;
spring dress
bursts through the earth like a plant,
walls crumble,
a song is born,
as light
illuminates the senses;
a chorus of discipline,
an abundance of flowers.
