Ouverture


Amazing use of words by a talented writer.

"Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance." - Carl Sandburg

Listen…

Close your eyes, breathe in and listen.

Listen to the woeful tune

of ivory and ebony murmuring

their gentle lull,

Dichotomies of senses, heartbeats,

Black and white,

A symphony of hollow notes,

vibrating with screams,

with desperate plights.

Listen…

Close your eyes, breathe in and listen.

Listen to the soothing notes,

Their weeping melody as bony fingers

rest onto the keys

of black and white,

Whispers echoing into the dark,

Grieving the lost, the cursed,

Calling the dead.

Listen…

Close your eyes and feel, open your heart,

Listen to the broken keys of black and white,

A lament for the shattered dreams

of those who lived, who fought, who bled,

and fell apart.
