"Arriving late to ..." Quote of Warren Falcon

Thursday, February 11, 2016

Arriving late to love the broken tower mourns its ringing ruin. Long drought of air stills the clapper. But one breath, Trembler, cracks metal. Muteness falls away. Frightened doves scatter. Annunciation of rafters: Come. Remember gaiety, how to sway. Who pulls the rope are many. Silver coin, fly up from empty fountain, renew into wishful hand a saint's pocket prayer returning.

Warren Falcon
from ' Annunciation- for Cesar Vallejo'
