Let the Music Play On


Shall we dance
in tired dreams –
revitalise the moisture
of daydreams?
Shall we sing
our daydreams –
rekindle long lost fires
and dampened themes?
Shall we dance?
Shall we sing?
Or just quit
and become farewell friends
of first impressions,
leaving behind lingering,
fragrant sessions,
of whimsical, musical memories
their lesions ache now,
scarred with the past
and pride’s mistakes?
Let staccato notes play
out each day –
high pitched and alone;
rapid, fiery, no rhythm, no sway?
On separate sheets of music,
we have become
as disjointed as the notes
and their stinging hum.
So, shall we dance?
Shall we sing?
Or, just call it a day?

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
