Everything a note


Everything I ever heard was a note

my life becoming

my life endangered 

my life ending


a resounding beautiful note


keys thumped by a fist

a string plucked

a bombs crescendo

the bullets that missed


my mothers sigh

my lovers why

my coming down

my guiltless high


your hello

and my goodbye

all resonate as notes to me

an endless sweeping symphony

Many thanks Hannah, Colin and Ray.

It is a worthwhile comment you make there Hannah, there is very little that is more exhilarating or uplifting than to survive near death. The days, months and subsequent years can alter that perception though.

Colin, I suppose cacophony actually could fit quite well, dependent on what type of mood the reader is in.

Cheers Ray, glad you liked it.

A real gem David. Romantic and uplifting - what poetry can convey so well , all gently held in the palm of the mind.
Good new year's fare for all to share!

Beautiful, a symphony indeed.
It is upbeat in spite of the bombs and bullets.
Happy New Year.
