The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age
Urge and urge and urge,
Always the procreant urge of the world.
To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.
Bare shoulders have returned to street corners and catcalls from construction sites have resumed. The playgrounds sing with unleashed children and tree limbs burst with white buds.
From last issue’s meditation on Shelter we emerge from our winter caverns and out into the vernal landscape. Light and life welcome us back and in response we celebrate Eros as our theme for this month’s issue of Glasschord.
Appropriate to the celebration of the god we are fortunate to be joined by a number of new female voices. We also have the privilege of featuring new work from England, Australia and Bulgaria along with both new and returning artists from here in the U.S.
In anticipation of next month’s theme of Incantations we invite all musically minded readers to consider submitting whether the piece be audible, literal or visual. We hope you will continue to help us proliferate the Glasschord project and as always we thank you for your feedback.
