Poetry anyone?

Saturday, April 4, 2015

I delved into poetry some years ago and enjoyed it. Recently having begun writing, and starting a fiction novel, I feel the urge to try poetry again.

This is much influenced by my book.


  Hope's Recital


the words they dance

sometimes a foxtrot

sometimes a waltz

and attempt a ballet on occasion

the river flows

the moon illuminates

the tree shades each

tender kiss

the sun

creates ashes from the remains

and hope

if it is allowed

manages the sun and the stars

in our heavens

it breathes life

and raises from the dead

those precious

those dear

those loved

and tames the wicked sun

into a dream

into a song

by which we all

may dance

I play in a gospel bluegrass band and have done a couple cd's with them. It's great fun making music, making the whole sound better than the individual. The absolute best compliment I have had is "you sure make the band sound good." If anyway possible learn to work on your own banjo. There are lots of informative books to enable anyone to do that. It isn't rocket science.
