A Saturday Afternoon

We are invited by Brian at d'Verse Poets to challenge ourselves by using senses other than sight.

I HEAR
Strains of Stevie Ray Vaughn
Andrew learning
From one of the best

The strings sing and cry
Music enters my feet
The same moment
My ears welcome the rhythm.

Self taught fingers
Slide and imitate
Fender frets
Heavy strings

Music ends
Tractor motor
Reminds me I am
At The Farm

I think we all anticipate the day we hear Andrew play and sing. Lovely words blended together Gail, with the strains of Stevie Ray Vaughn and the tractor blending in. LIKE :)

I love this today Gail because it is the very lovely part of just being at home. It is a very warm and inviting poem.

Sandy said...

The sound of the guitar playing amazing tunes, and the sound of a tractor in the background makes for great music.

Sue said...

I've always wondered which sense I love more….sight or hearing.

I'd hate to have to decide…
