he fashioned a stage from wooden pallets
shafts of dust-specked sun the afternoon spot-lights
in his post-apocalyptical opera house

they applauded; feeling, not sound, the joyful noise (280 characters)

singing the praises of Kat’s twittering tale 161

speaking of hallelujah choruses . . .

k d lang’s version always brings me to tears. This Hallelujah is from a celebration of Leonard Cohen and his music on 6 November 2017 at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec. Sure do miss you, Leonard. (b. 21 September 1934 — d. 7 November, 2016)
