As a newly minted apprentice poet, welcome to the tools of my trade and no prizes for guessing which gets the most use ... :rolleyes: Anyway, here is another selection of verse with music as the theme.

 

My continuing thanks to Parker Owens for his support and encouragement. All comments, crits and compliments are welcome.

 

Ancient
Borrowed, mortared
Timelessly rememb'ring
Conjuring forth darkness, tallows
Silent
Singing
Faith-shrouded shapes
Uninvited phantoms
Wend down bowed midnight stair into
My mind

 

~

 

Nervous
Adrenalin
Alert heart pounds, mouth dries
Focussed blood pumps, muscles flex, just
For play

 

~

 

Burnished
Pulsing tendrils
Swirl, coiling, massing in
Shadowed, columned spaces until
Metalled
Dark clouds
Cumulating
Release their sonorous
Load, felt deep within, almost
Unheard

"Wend down bowed midnight stair into

Damn... that should be in the dedication of a psychology text. Beautifully done.

I like the final one the most. I suppose your perspective behind the kettle drum means you are the final one to 'hear' it diminish in the chest...
