Happy birthday Franci Louann

Author of Beach Cardiology has a birthday today and to celebrate I upload a poem from Franci's chapbook.


Ecstasy


perhaps it was the red wine and this week’s 
news about Christ’s face
appearing on a condo wall in Ladysmith

burgundy, crimson, scarlet
when we loved, red flowed through me

I was androgynous
partly Christ, partly Mary, your Sacred Heart

robes, banners, crucifix
burgundy, crimson, scarlet
when our love came, red flowed through me

A little bit of ecstasy (the real kind, not the sort stirred up in someone's back shed) -- what a great way to celebrate a birthday.
Happy Day, Franci!
