MELODY IS A MEMORY


MELODY IS A MEMORY

IN THE NEW LIGHT

OF THE DAWN

OPENING MY EYES

THE MOTION BEGS

FOR A MOVEMENT

TO THE CHANGE

IN THE DOORS

THAT CLOSE

TO THOSE NEW

THAT OPEN

SOME WIDE

AND

WAITING

OTHERS NEED

A TAP AND RELEASE

YET STILL

OTHERS

ARE LOCKED

AND CLOSED

IN THE STILLNESS

OF OUR

PULSING HEARTS

AND

BREATHING IN

OF THE

FRESH AIR

FROM THAT WINDOW

THE BIRDS

CHIRPING

AND FLOWING

IN AND OUT

OF THE

SPACES SEEN

LIKE THE SMILE

ON MY FACE

WASHED AWAY

BY THE CURRENT

YET THE DEEP

RIPPLES

SPREAD OUT

ALIVE

IN THESE

MOMENTS

THE LIGHT

SHIMMERING

FROM MY

BLINKING

CLOSED EYES

THEN

FOREVER

OPENED WIDE

OUR DIRECTIONS

OF THE LUSH

GREEN

TREES

STILL AS A

PHOTOGRAPH

ITS JUST

AN ORDINARY

DAY

YET I WILL ALWAYS

LIVE IN

THE MELODY

OF OUR

MEMORIES

SO OUT THE DOOR

AND INTO

THE BRIGHT

GREYS OF THE

SKY

FOR THE PURPLES

THAT FLOW

LIKE MY MOOD

AND THE

SOARING BIRD

THAT SHOOTS

BY

IT IS A

GOOD DAY!
