Two Jazz Rengay - Published by: The Song Is



strata of sounds

one disengages and wraps

around the others J


a new cocoon 

seamless and unmatched L


silk unravels

on a turn of breeze

honeysuckle I


the solo reveals 

saxophone glimmers gold

sunlight laughter M


across and through time

contrapuntal J


notes in transition

caught by summer clouds

emerge as epiphanies L


-- Julie Naslund, Leslie McKay, Ingrid Bruck, and Marianne Szlyk




Sunday at the Jazz Festival


I shed my old jacket

for an eccentric rhythm of DNA

even rust dances L


a riot of notes

jazz horn heats the stadium I


pulse and collision

double helix rises

new instructions J


desirous dissonance

from inception blue to the bone

homage to catharsis L


cacophonous cymbals clang

fuse drumbeats to toes tapping SE


dancing on Sunday 

we are notes rising


climbing the double helix  M


-- Leslie McKay, Ingrid Bruck, Julie Naslund, SE Ingraham, and Marianne Szlyk
