Lift up this soft box of hearts,
the soapstone letters of your passing
days and nights among a room of light
and dust.

Find the notes like silver coins
spinning somewhere by themselves
with the shadow cents they bring
to you.

Play a song like fractured rainbows
about a girl who painted canvas
white or black, left it blank
or dark.

Taste with her that map of glass
and feathers. Rust and paint and chains.
Seams and nails and mirrored face.
Sheets of notes in score.

Find the chords and let them burn
as sunlight on a beach of stones.
Collect yourself from the color
of the tidepool near that shore.

Stream along as fingers flex
and soothe the metal strung and rung.
Wring out all the watered blood.
Sit back.

Lay down this soft box of hearts.
They fluttered for you, passing by.
Now let their whispered beats comfort you
to sleep.

and like a lullaby
sung to soothe a fragile soul
I close my eyes . . .

nothing quite like it - you captured it nicely here:

Wring out all the watered blood.
Sit back.

got my vote . . . xxoo

Beauty in the soothing tones of your performance here my friend.  A very lyrical appeal in the flowing lines. Very well said.

bsquirrel - this is the best poem I've read of yours I believe, and it does deserve to go into the book. My vote is cast...

(big hugggssssssss) Oh Michael, I too own an acoustic guitar, and an electric one too, and I feel some of the best songs come straight from ones most treasured memories, and like silver dollars each one will make a mint when a loved one is touched and lost in the music! (sigh) This is wonderful, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

A beautifully penned piece, Mike.
Nicely done.

This is beautiful - the direction of your work lately has taken you to a higher plain. You are getting better and better (if that was possible as everything you write is exceptional!). Glad to vote here!

You have quickly become a fave poet
of mine, bsquirrel. The way you use
your pen to create unique images is
top notch. Thanks for this.

When you think you have heard it all,
listen more closely.

Find the chords and let them burn
as sunlight on a beach of stones.

This entire work did that... so very well. *S*

One of the greatest perks of the book project is the expanding of our horizons, finding poets we'd somehow missed... but won't again. *S*

Thank you all for voting for this late-comer. I don't know if it will garner enough votes to get in the book, but it's nice to have more people read it here than its original posting in Dark. I feel a strange affection for this piece, and am glad you all enjoyed it.

I remember this, or one very much like it.
It still rings for me.

Michael,
Smokin'! Votin'.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
