White Noise #Quadrille

She would play piano keys
on the lake beside the boats
where unusual fish would tap fins
in rhythmic harmony,
smiling rhapsodic.
Bobbing scales fizzing with
sparkling water would reflect
sunshine applause of tinkling drops;
splashes of ivory watercolours
painted a jazzy afternoon.

A Quadrille is a 44 word poem.

44 words. Quadrille #15 Leaves.  Other entries here.

spine tingling tunes
work me up and down like
shivers – my hands dance;
each one like trembling jazz’s
autumnal leaves vibrating from my core –
connected nerves trace the crisp, white leaves
of a music book’s inky black saxophones
giving clarity to my
strumming fingertips.

2nd draft – more autumnal

Seasonal tingling tunes
work me up and down like
shivers – my hands dance;
each one trembling like autumn’s
jazzed leaves vibrating from shed trees –
connected nerves trace the crisp leaves
of a music book’s inky black saxophones
giving clarity to summer’s numbing,
strumming, fingertips.
