Distraction's Drum



Arising forth from 'cross the glen
comes low the sweetened sapphire song
of the poet whose words from marbeled pen
endure the day, and the night, prolong.

With sonnet's sense of lyrical thrum
his cadence calls and, drawing nigh,
is placed, anew, distraction's drum
to induce with ease, a muse's reply.

As kisses now fall upon the throat
of one with music placed into her voice,
and from his lips, spills a poetic quote,
intuition allowing his tender choice.

An honest ache, time's toll revealed
as fingers find the treasures there
and trace the tiny locket, sealed
and mingled, moist, in heathered hair.



Dear LadyClaire

Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

Simply put, stunning.
Was trying to come up with the right word to describe my reaction to this wonderful verse.
Couldn't decide between entranced or enraptured. Thank you for letting us share in your talent.

Marge, thank you so much for your gracious words about this poem...and you are very much appreciated as well.

Hi Rex, so glad you liked this...thank you for reading it (and for the smile)  

Poet deVine, just that you took time to read and let me know is the best response, to my way of thinking. Thank you, very much!

Balladeer, I had a little inspiration with the title, to be sure. Thank you for reading.

Serenity, I'm glad you read and enjoyed it...thank you!

JML, I certainly appreciate your WOW's.   Glad you liked this one and its title. Distraction is an inspiring sensation, at times. Thank you.
