Messiaen

***************

liturgy of birds
crystal abyss of rainbows
the end of angels

[“Quartet for the End of Time”]

***************

paradise eyes of
bridal apparition marked
with the glory light

[“Illuminations of the Beyond”]

***************

the sun slept in dark
mountains . . . farewell gestures of
planetary love

[“Harawi”]

***************

interstellar gift
written in the desert rocks . . .
awe resurrected

[“From the Canyons to the Stars”]

***************

trumpet majesty
heaven ascending . . . Father
demanding glory

[“L’Ascension”]

***************
