Gail Langstroth: Easter Sunday

as the orange disc splits horizon’s dark—brushes
lavender into treetops 

I get up   not to count 
rather to see    

air  :  song
bird-song-all with one 
distant train whistle  

Ra   Apollo   Phoebus   

I get up to see  : 
Easter Morning

colored bands stretch light 
through song   if this 
is a Prelude to something else

then The Sun This Morning  :  one round, middle C 
anchoring its orange over
hill   gravestone  
3 rivers  /  valley  /  city  /  ocean   —
