4.9.17 The White Hour

Czeslaw Milosz said “At the entrance, my bare feet on the dirt floor, Here, gusts of heat; at my back, white clouds. I stare and stare. It seems I was called for this: To glorify things just because they are.” This week we consider the color white with poetry and music with “white space” somewhere in each piece.
