"Midnight Flight of the Poetry Angels" was created in commemoration of the historic election of U.S.A. President Barack Obama. In painted relief against the brilliant background color is the following poem from "The Bridge of Silver Wings 2009":
Midnight Flight of the Poetry Angels
(in honor of a poet who would be president)
What once was blood streaks
your face with indigo tears
and lush midnight tunes.
Holding silver hands,
you compose a Tao of art
that heals broken wings.
Lips glow violet,
open to reveal tongues bright
with pearl metaphors.
A speckled halo
handcuffs the worldâ€™s best liars
to soft dark passions.
Musicâ€™s sweet labors
give birth to a springtime rush
of sighs rippling dreams.
Out of your mouth rhymes
blossom like warm paradigms
already in flight.
Golden, your songs,
nobly spinning planets on
their axis of love.
On faithâ€™s battered back
calm eyes etch prayers that cool
a nationâ€™s hot rage.
Inside these scarred hearts
genius flows incandescent
waves of truth made real.
Hope drowned in shadows
emerges fiercely splendidâ€“â€“
