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 & 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 &           Marianne Szly
