Sonatina
Sonatina
by Johnmichael Simon, Illustratons Helen Bar-Lev


In Johnmichael Simon's 'Sonatina', music is a multicolored skein of threads connecting past and future selves, as memories of childhood delights are interwoven with the humble and wise reflections of an older man making peace with mortality. Lost friends return as benign ghosts to bless the journey; even J.S. Bach himself makes an appearance to marvel at the modern narrator's stereo system. The poet's peaceful continuity with nature and tradition inspires hope that nothing precious is truly lost forever, even after the last notes of our individual voices fade.
