Rain Drenched Tulip

Poetry for Guitar: The Flightless Birds of the Livermore Yacht Club

Sparrows

In colorful silence on a nameless boathouse wall, flightless birds of the Livermore Yacht Club artfully display their tempered rigid wings.  Meanwhile, The Sparrows of Redhook, New York dream of flight in an endless sky, saving their voices for a reverberated cry of freedom.
