Poem for Sunday Scribblings


Sunday Scribblings prompts: ...For some, the word poetry conjures up terror; other people's mouths begin to water in anticipation. Very few people feel nothing about it. Either way, your assignment this week is to write some - whether you like it or not!





One Long Trill

Mystic strands
a little scat,
baby blues
one long trill.
Jazz tunes my soul
by sensual plums
like a master lover
might bestow.
By a warm thrum
of rhyming fingers
awash in joyful tears
when happiness
is a little jazz,
a little scat,
and one long trill.

Comes a time when the ups and downs are places so often visited, that you can just sit back and relax to the long trill of happiness.

Oh, this was beautiful...yes, music does that! I especially loved these lines:

By a warm thrum
of rhyming fingers
awash in joyful tears


The finger strokes in your painting are perfect to describe how 'touched' we can be by the music.
