Porcelain and Onyx

Written by: Carole Cookie Arnold

Porcelain and Onyx Free verse His Agile fingers float across The faces of porcelain and onyx Translucently releasing a glow Firing the atmosphere with romance Stirring emotions into a harmonic melody Eyes closed he sees each note arise A melodic ambiance saturates the room There is no ceiling in creating music To be able to bring rapture to every heart As I sat and listened on my porch Among the buttercups responding To His sweet refrains I feel moved, exhilarated, and universal One with all humankind for music Is the world’s universal language My words float from the banjo of time Riding upon the four winds with unity Music is the common tie between Us all That Every Ear And Spirit Understands Carole Cookie Arnold 2011
