February 2021 Newsletter
A tribute to Lawrence Ferlinghetti, San Francisco poet and visionary
Dimmer now the city lights,
their beating, unbound energies
like the brightest blazing candle spent.
A flame remains,
forever fused to the city’s soul,
burned in an afterimage
of freewheeling factions
and freedom fighters,
immortalized in verse and love.
Guardian to howling spirits,
balefire to the wayfaring fringe,
prophet of peace and light
his white and wizened smile
ebbs into grey fog,
and streetlights flicker
for an eternal instant,
from North Beach to the heavens.
Yet the beat drums on–
deafening in its silence.
– Carter Chase, DL+A team member
San Francisco lost a giant this week, but so much of what this city means today still rests upon his shoulders. Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet and founder of City Lights, dead at 101.
