#SOL17: Faith

From my art journal, 2017


Faith
is the bird
that feels the light
And sings
when the dawn
is still dark.

                                 —RABINDRANATH TAGORE




It was decades ago when I first heard Rob, the man who I would later marry, read a poem, "Faith," that he had written. I was in the basement of an old mill in Paterson, NJ--one of many in the audience that night. We had gathered to hear poetry read aloud. We were moved by the narrative in Rob's poem that chronicled  a neighborhood in Hell's Kitchen--a neighborhood he knew so well.
