Silent Lyrics Unseen

 

SILENT LYRICS UNSEEN

Today of all days
I long for the skill of an artist

to paint the color of her eyes
peering at me, from afar;
to capture her silhouette with a brush.

Today of all days
I long for the skill of a poet

to reveal on the exterior
the rich silence from the inside,
penning alliteration and verse.

Today of all days
I long for the skill of a musician

to record a lilting tune
to accompany her sensuous saunter,
her tresses trailing in the breeze.

Today of all days
I long to remember her forever.

  1. A painter, a poet and a musician are all artists. But memory can keep a someone alive when there is no painting to see, no poem to read, no song to hear. This is beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Walt, for stopping by…for seeking out and reading the echoes of your own words as provided in the prompt. I hope I did them justice.
