Rain

rain hits the piano keys
forms melodies
wrung from storms
to the untrained ear
random
but
like woodland-creature footfalls on fresh snow
patterned
by the pulse of life
moving
fleeing
preying
playing
notes of the living
bittersweet, sometimes sweet, sonatas

the dissonant chords
and
consonant chords
dance
in harmonically progressive orbits
that create cloudy tempests

the wind wrings the clouds
and rain falls
striking the piano keys of life

Out Dancing…

Happy Labor Day to my US friends. I wish you and all my blogging friends around the world a blissful place to dance.  ( 📸: Alannah Cliff)

MUNA, live from Honda Stage in NYC:

 

 

 

Cherita #14

dissonant chord struck

guitar strings pulled
too tightly

their tension teased
latent teardrops
from the heavy air

Kiss

lips kiss in embouchure

fingers dance over open holes

the French Flute sings
