Symphony Of A Squall

a cool breeze sets the tone
leaves twist and turn
rustling like cabassas
in a restless rhumba band

the pace quickens

a whistling glissando
rises higher and higher
then, in unison
leaves roll over
backsides to the moon

somber harmonics emerge
a mad tympanist
antagonizes the sky
into self-announcing
drum rolls of rain

this movement ends abruptly

leaves return to the opening theme

a graceful shimmy
flicking pizzacato raindrops
back to the sky

This is one of the best poems I have read @ Neopoet. Period.

You are out of your mind to think I meant it.

Jus' kidding. Wanted to make sure you weren't drunk stoned or impaired in any way....


Did I happen to tell you I love this poem?

I get lucky once in a while...sometimes even when I am writing a poem!

thank you for your generous words of encouragement....don't forget to be just as generous to yourself!
