PAINTING STUDIO SILENT NIGHT

I wrote this piece in December of 2,005 and am re-posting it today.

Silent Night
Stone claws clasp
Ledge high above
The Streets
Gargoyle Wings
Frozen
Carved smile
Silent
Grimace
Blindly stare
As Liberty and
Dragon Dance
Holiday Cheer
Teeming the Streets
With Seasons Spirits
All those feelings
Thoughts, pains, dreams,
and Joys.
An Angel
Wiped snow from the
Gargoyle brow
and wrapped a
Wing around
The Stone Carved
Figure.
Giving sight to
The Blind
and warmed
The Heart
From above
They Sang
Sacred Songs
with no words
In the Silent
Night.

It is snowing as I type.
Have a good-great
Christmas Season
and
As ever be well,
With love.
Stephen Craig Rowe
