Song becomes this light,
time escapes these bars in flight,
sing these years so bright…
I have had this Victorian bird cage
since I was a teenager.
We found it in one of the beautiful old houses
torn down to make way for Highway 101
that replaced the Old Redwood Highway outside
of Geyserville, California in the late 60's early 70's.
This past week,
I had the idea to string it up with tiny LED lights,
and I must say...
it brings me much delight
to see something so old
transformed into something so new
