Plaudits for Dolci

Dolci at Aquatic Park, San Francisco, November 21, 2014

(to Viva and Ted)

Breaking waves
On the shore
Of unsang song

A lost soul cries
A seagull answers

Dark clouds and stellar thoughts
Mingle in "schubertiades"
Sublime reconciliation
Of demons and angels.

SF, 2/6/15



Dear Dolci,

I am your loyal audience. Because my English is not good, so I'm embarassed to express my feedback. I think music has no borders, and I know you, I have the music with your excitement, meditation happy, you the feelings are my feelings. Thank you for giving me a lot of joy, and I will always miss you.
One of your loyal fans,

The uninvited guest
(To Viva and Ted)

Flesh floating on the bones
deceptive illusion
Rummaged gesture
broken line, obsolete elegance

The uninvited guest disturbs
Creeps, eclipses our innocence
Dressed like a black crow
This has-been-swan mourns her past.

Chopin, Krenek, wipe the deplorable
Ted and Viva stay who they are:
generous musicians, stubbornly good.

In the rainbow room
nobody wishes for golden age
but the unwelcomed comes, anyway.
