Her Fingers Tapped A Notion

Her fingers tapped a notion
The paper took on words
Whose meanings moved stale air
A flight for typist and bird.

Who flits beyond her window
In a dusty attic room
And gathered up its feathers
To brush away the doom.

Its flight took it far away
the absence made her weep
But when her typing ended
The notion was complete.

Unity is power, he said.
I loved his face,
but his laugh bothered me.
It impressed me as phoney.
And who was he anyway
to tell me about unity?

I heard my mother in my mind;
her voice sharp with knowingness.
Her eyes like pools of wet, blue experience.
Don’t lower your standards,
she said.
I believed her.
Increase the effort.

About men? I thought?
He laughed again, and I walked away.
But not before taking the brochure he offered.

Help Save the Northern Rockies Music Festival

The Northern Rockies Music Festival is all about bringing great music to the Wood River Valley. For the past 38 years, this festival has thrived on the hard work of a small board that works year around to find exceptional regional and national musicians, intermix them with local artists and vendors in order to create a community event.

This event has continually given local artists a chance to share the stage with bands they admire while providing the entire community with a loved and timeless event in the quintessential small town of Hailey, Idaho.

Though the event continues to be a roaring success, the costs of continuing the festival is currently unapproachable.  Without further financial support we will reluctantly have to say goodbye to the festival for the foreseeable future. But we won’t give up without a fight!

If you love music, Idaho or just have some cash to burn, please, please, please make a donation and help us keep the music alive.
