Approbations 684
by Felino A. Sorian

—after Ahmad Jamal’s Moonlight In Vermont

Fades and returns

               amid twirling hours


                                                          recreated nuances. Of pillared

architecture, portending meandering mood


                relevant cultivation among


amid streaks of mimicking

                                                                enunciated elation.
