Michelangelo Merisi Caravaggio

Birth in anticipation
This the hour of Creation's Call
Pulsing, throbbing, life emergent
And then the cry
The resounding glory
Of breath and life
To mark birth anew.

Happy Birthday

In loving devotion to my Son
Christopher Angelo


Madonna dei Palafrenieri,The Mother, the Child, and the Serpent, first exhibited in Saint Peter's Basilica in 1606, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, 1571- 1610.


  1. Awesome Rosie..... what a great tribute. Really beautiful. Happy birthday Christopher. Really a beautiful poem.

  2. Clare, I know you know the delight of an adult child you can continue to cover with love. And so blessed we are.

  3. Sounded like Didgeridoo at the beginning of the video, gave me goosebumps :)

  4. strawberryelohist, Yes, the sound is haunting and beautiful at the same time. Image and music of this video I too, found to be captivating. Thank you for stopping by and sharing in this day of birth.

  5. and to my dear Son...

    as the personages emergent from the darkness by Caravaggio
    as the figure freed from the marble by Michelangelo
    so too our Will to create from within
    our beauty our truth
    and known be the divination of ONE.

    Much love on to you,

  6. as this day is lived...

    Across distances, seas and oceans of time, Beauty and Truth be known
    And PRAISE to you dear Son for the artistry, with God's light shown.
