week 352 ~ splintering the air

with 2 comments

me.352splintering the air
notes clash fall away
no safe harbor there

Schoenberg doesn’t scare
me eyes closed you play
splintering the air

for tonight all’s fair
no one wants to say
no safe harbor there

dissonances dare
take center stage stay
splintering the air

preconceptions tear
motives don’t replay
no safe harbor there

but we remain stare
entranced by the fray
splintering the air
no safe harbor there

a brief example

Week 327 ~ notes float fly

me.328notes float fly
disappear
like a sigh
notes float fly
dreams pass by
who will hear
notes float fly
disappear

week 75 ~ sifting the music through my fingers I

with 19 comments

sifting the music through my fingers I
look to see if there could be something more
for me here while pretending to ignore
the voice of the doubting angel on my
shoulder who thinks it’s time for me to go
home when I bent my life to follow this
crooked path there was nothing in my his-
tory to suggest that I could although
I’ve always been a little fierce about
things that matter like this moment hating
to find myself bags packed in the doorway
of good-bye unsure if I should walk out
or turn back or simply stand here waiting
to hear the notes that still could make me stay
