My Yesterday

Business in my head … it won't stop When it starts it can't end Where it ends nobody knows Decisions, decisions - always, never ending. With the wind in my face, wheels turning around and around I hear the YellowJackets; Theonius Monk pulsing in the background Charlie Parker screeching to the beat of real jazz Melodious chords after chords floating onward – peacefully in tune inside. Momentum carries my thoughts of one, today With smiling green eyes of Golden hair forcefully driven - dressed in happiness, colorful Echoing throughout my day. Outside she … coated in sugarless healthy sweetness – wine in hand Inside I wonder - what moves her? What thoughts she may have of life’s joys and false toys? Wearing outer power … searching inner self for what she is, will be, wants to be? Wondrous movements of such deep intensity – hmm. © Charles H Keys, 2012. All Rights Reserved

Very interesting images. I bet Dave Austin here would love this kind of poem. He played in an orchestra but loves all kinds of music.

Chuck, my late husband was a jazz critic and he loved Thelonius Monk. Like the way you drift through nostalgic memories of the girl you loved. This poem is a delight to read -- brings back so many memories, Chuck. Love, Carolyn
