My Mind In E flat

It only takes a note to raise me from
my slumber …

A tip tappity tap of a beat.
Something street,
and I’m all ears, hands,

but most of all feet …

a melody meanders in the back
of my mind,

a simple, serene
rhythm somewhere
between love and war

is the perfect score, that brings
with it harmony.

    Very good I love double entrandre, as in "perfect score" Thanks for your kind comment the verse The Sowing, getting #1 was a BIG surprise for me, I'd entered other poets contests and not even got honorable mention, the site doesn't seem to appreciate free verse, nor does it appreciate layered imagery, rhyme's King here [sigh] I will be the Queen of Free Verse??? YES! Light & Love
