Hope At Solstice

written by: Catherine Lee


Subtle transition
darkness slowly overwhelming light
’til unfailing
comes a rebirth point

This gradual flickering
sustains a hope
that darkness that
harbors secret greed
turns - in time - to
share enduring peace



Catherine Lee explores poetry as a percussive voice either as a soloist reading at poetry events or with jazz musicians when sitting in “on poem.” Her mentor, Beat poet/hipster tedjoans shared his “Jazz is my religion” griot philosophy; today Lee carries this legacy forward. From San Antonio TX and Asheville NC, Lee creates multimedia poetry archived at Soundcloud and VIMEO, and blogs about exceptional jazz poets at Facebook’s Jazz Ovation Inn. Lee’s writing appears in recent anthologies: Rapture; Beat-itude; Weary Blues; Poets Facing the Wall; Descansos.
