Well Tuned

It flows through
Dew
Drops on spider webs
And pings a string
"Oh What A Beautiful
Morning"
Steam from coffee
Swirls to "Proud Mary"
Furry tails swing
While I sing "Happy"
His good bye kiss
Tastes like "Something"
The car wheels
Thumping
On the street
"Eight Days a Week"
Lift your hands up
Life's a song
Clap, dance, sing
Or hum along

This is offered for  Gabriella's prompt at Poetry Jam poetryjaam.blogspot.com to write a tribute, started out as a tribute to music which is my constant whether actually playing or just from the jukebox in my brain, but may have ended up as a tribute to life or joy...you can pick. And for the prompt by Gay at dversepoets.com to write a song, a bit of serendipity there  :-)  Enjoy!

  2. What a beautiful tribute, Sara! I feel the rhythmic beat of happiness in your words. (Oddly - smiles - I always had a fondness for the song 'Proud Mary.')

  6. I'm glad this worked for you twice. It is fun, bouncy, and has a little Beatle homage - on this big anniversary of theirs. Yes (I admit it) I saw them on that Ed Sullivan show - way back when. Enjoyed this a lot. Thank you.

  11. The best is the double Beatles, and the GOOD bye kiss. Ironically, I had no song for this, although I saw the prompt. BAD songwriter!!! Yours is sweet and, as you said, taken from your mental jukebox. Loved it.

    Thanks for your good wishes and continued friendship. xo Amy
