Blue Notes

 

by Kevin T McEneaney

 

What is love in high C in the morning

when dew nestles on waving leaf and blade

while burning sun has burnt all clouds not nil

and ants scramble through watery meadows?

 

What is love in B minor in the night

while wind rattles windows and parlor walls

when electricity quits as lines fall

like butterflies in a green hurricane.

 

What is love in A on Spring afternoon

when a stream trills beneath an arching bridge

while water spiders skim the swift surface

performing an ancient dance before death?

 

The act of love blooms within minutes

creating a tableaux of memories….
