The Joys of Sax

entry picture

Sweet notes waft past in the chilly wind.

I had no choice but to change course. To surrender to its sweet invitation.

So there I was guided down the steps

and into the underground concert hall.  

There he was resplendent in a black jaded suit,

black tie, dark glasses.

Cultured notes floating effortlessly,

echoing against the cold tunnel.

I stood in awe. Admiring the poetic grace as his fingers caressed

his golden asset. His only possession.

Every bar told a story. This is his moment of glory.

The soul of sax. The spirit of freedom.

A once empty hat on the cold tiles tinkles with coins

as they rain from the heavens.

Changing lives. His and mine.

love the title and what to me is its accompanying line:

Admiring the poetic grace as his fingers caressed
his golden asset

the sax has always been a sexy instrument but maybe I'm stretching the point of that line a little too far.

the tunnel and the coins raining down from the heavens are great images and leave us with much to think about.

nice one Chakraj
