Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love 2020: A Microdose
Thank you to all who traveled through frequencies outside of the norm and all who came together in spirit for the 15th Annual Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love.
A Poem by Lucille Clifton
Let there be a new flowering
In the fields let the fields
Turn mellow for the men
Let the men keep tender
Through the time let the time
Be wrested from the war
Let the war be won
Let love be
At the end
This poem has been painted on the grounds of El Cosmico since 2005 and holds a special place in our hearts – especially now.
