Chicken

music

I turn the lights off

When I listen to the chorus

It’s like playing chicken

With God

*

Music is empathic

The way it presses tears

From soul threads

*

Every tender refrain

Leaves me redolent

As a newly dispensed sea

A state of saturation

That expedites purity

*

Everything I know of love

I’ve scraped

From your bones

Words rich and iron-infused

You are

The unbroken voice within

The illumination

Of a benevolent unknown

*

Not much time to write hence the disconnect between the stanzas. I am celebrating Christmas with my little family unit today and then with the in-laws tomorrow.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

  1. Merry Christmas Yves, no matter how you celebrate it and with whom it is always special. Today I am getting ready for my girls and their families to arrive, most exciting. My boys and I have had a quiet day, we always do. Have a good one.
