DAVIDS FOR DAVID

DAVID FOSTER, CANADIAN COMPOSER/SONG WRITER


The melody can not be denied, pulled

from dreams and a lifetime of heartbeats.

First, come long notes that the piano mulls

while fingers linger. He returns to his sheets.

The tune reveals itself in black on white,

echoing warm ivories. A full moon prowls

several clouds that seem to skirt its light, 

like words that evade him. So, he scowls

at the window, takes the stillness inside

then sighs as everything falls into place.

There it is. The chorus no longer hides.

David knows the night, how it encases
 
a song. Lines love keys, those ebonies,

for the dark unlocks perfect symphonies. 





*David, I know you prefer the new minimalist sonnets, something which you showed us and I do plan to explore those as well. Thank you for what you bring to Soup. 

Thinking of you and the Mrs! Blessings sent to both of you!

    I love the way you have used enjambment to let the poem flow, without interruption from the rhymes of the sonnet format. Wishing you a lovely weekend. Love, Su
