Wednesday Poetry

Today’s prompt was to write a poem about a sound.


The Smallest of Noises Communicates Much

A sigh, a rustle of sheets
I feel you reaching out
though I’m half asleep
and answer 
by holding your hand
in the dark.


Something happens
when you write a poem
and then
add music.

A song is something more
and less
than a poem.

A poem is more pure,
simply words
telling feelings 
sharing the human

A song is less about
the words, 
a clever phrase 
can make a song
almost sing itself.

And there is a heady moment,
Very like the feeling 
Of a first kiss,
when you know 
you really have something.
