Go Make People Among Rain

go make people s

Go make people among rain
gather kin beneath the storm
hold the lost and the forlorn
go make people among rain

Ask the echoes to explain
watch silence being born
go make people among rain
gather kin beneath the storm

Dance the circle round again
dreams enchanted into form

chords of color greet the sun
singing verse into refrain

Go make people among rain

On May 25, Robert Okaji posted his beautiful translation of Wang Wei’s poem “Apricot House”.  He included the Chinese-poems.com transliteration of the original poem, and I was taken by the line from it, “Go make people among rain”.  Robert challenged me to take that line and make my own poem, which I did, based on a slightly altered Rondel form.

    A totally fabulous piece and I love the poem too. That one deserves to be framed in a nice big box frame. Absolutely gorgeous. And the poem too. You are really doing some great work.

      Robert is really an inspiration…I’m glad I could rise to his challenge. I like the idea of combining two different media pieces into one as well.
