week 405 ~ wrap your notes around my pencil let them

with 4 comments

me.405 wrap your notes around my pencil let them
fall perfectly aligned onto the page
elegant commanding each one a gem
or at least get me through this pregnant stage
of wishful examining discarding
ideas unwritten phrases grant mercy
as I search for a means of expressing
what’s potent in my dreams without words free
and mysteriously lovely to hear
I’m confounded by melodies somewhere
inside me already their shape unclear
waiting to find a quiet space and there
give birth to what I’ve felt heard all along
oh gods of music let me write this song

week 395 ~ there is a melody deep in my soul

with 2 comments

me.395there is a melody deep in my soul
most days it sits quietly waiting for
the walls of busy to relax for more
than a breath so I can reboot to whole
it drums inside my brain flashes briefly
but then subsides stymied by a world that
steam rollers upstart inspiration flat
no time to spare for creativity
so I drift on hopeful that up ahead
I’ll trade in duty and nonessential
schedules sneak past the signal jammer full
to the top with tunes that will sing instead
of disappearing into rush hour
distracted dissolving losing power
