Night and Day

2011-04-06_20-13-25_809_1024

Between rhythm and rhyme

wondering which it would be

words seemed to fail me

the notes sounded out of key

 

Then you walked into the room

arranged the lyrics to a tune

You blew me away– repeatedly,

endlessly, to heights not yet known

 

Words so cleverly coupled, selected,

slithered into slippery dark places

stirring memories and  dreams

painful heartbreaks of yesterday.

 

Caught up in an exotic dance

the music allured me once again

the beats, the strums, together

with words, they knew the drums

 

of my heart. They danced in  valleys,

on mountains, through the oceans

beneath the moon and with the sun–

lighting up life between night and day.
