The Solstice and Joanna Brouk


light of morning
the fairest light, the fairest light
has come

softly, I feel its coming

night has given
night has given
a place to morning
breath returns and moistens
the grass the birds feather

no longer do I hide
no longer do I hide
gone into darkness

light has come

One more Solstice moment I'd like to share, in the form of a poem from a section of my website called "Found Poems", by a long lost friend, Joanna Brouk Brinton, written in the winter of 1973. I still find the poem (the series can be found at the link below) beautiful. In the poem Joanna moves, like stream, through the rythems of season, current, night and day, to the Sun's return.

And here is a link to Joanna's music, from a KPFA broadcast ("Hearts of Space") in 1972, a reader recently sent me.

I actually came across your site because, like the other poster, I was looking for more information and interested in hearing more recordings by Joanna Brouk -- but I just wanted to say that you make such beautiful artwork!! Let it shine!

Love, Ben

PS: I'm not necessarily interested in contacting Joanna Brouk, but I would still like to hear more of her recordings. Do you know how I could do that? I also have a quick question for you about Tucson. If you get a chance, please e-mail me at Thanks, and be well!
