My Love Song In Tankas

just in few moments as the dusk obscures the sky lids cover my eyes my mind begins to reckon the things I’ve done the whole day a flurry it was missing the sun in your eyes my heart in regrets didn’t sing you song last night or gave you right back sweet hugs now I sing my song but ice cream melts on its cone what else will I do to win back the love from you and make me smile and heart grows plead down so deeply asking you not to leave me I am so sorry this is the best melody be sung in my poetry I hope you can hear song being played in G-Clef lonely but lovely Tanka Song with love I sing hoping to ease all our pains

Howlin' Wolf

inhales in shadows
takes inspiration from gloom
moonlight penetrates
creates an old fashion song
simply called singing the blues

Musical Genius

Musical genius Wrapping his notes around me Fascinating eyes Pulsating beats with pleasure A great entwining music

Blues Tanka contest

Notes tickle the ear
Sorrow's song so sweetly sung
Faintly I'm aware
Somber, melodic embrace
Melancholy fills the air

VIOLIN - multiform

VIOLIN  - multiform 

the old cedar chest
cracks with a dry musty blast
an edison bulb
in the gloom brings back the past
old news and dad’s violin

scratchy violin
alexander’s ragtime band
old 78

now the house lights dim
quiet anticipation
walking on – perlman!

Music to my Ears

sweetness in your voice
all the lovely words you speak
music to my ears
         i feel all my sorrows fade
            warm sunlight encompasses

KEEPING TIME WITH RHYTHM

The young paraders
keep time with the fast band,
I keep time with rhythm
counting strong beats in music 
with a mini metronome.

Sweet Music

Something soothes my soul
as the notes waft clear and strong.
I am transported
to a soft and gentle place.
Music brings me sweet repose.
