Taking a Final Sunshine Bow
We never did get to lounge on our balconies
Sipping wine, munching chips.
We never did get to hike the hills of
Berkley Springs, West Virginia.
But we did get to
A new music.
Composing media tunes
Of hope and passion for the
University of Maryland’s Writing Project.
Creating in small groups, in pairs, going solo.
We composed our tunes on computers
For a marathon of 48 hours,
And as we woke with more rain for our finale,
We sang our songs for an embracing audience
To roaring cheers
Supporting these tunes as they moved out
Into the world…
As the sunshine rode us
