The piano played memories
one chord, then two
while the trees felt gray
and the clouds sang
sky’s blues.

Each note wore a cloak
like the trees wear leaves
and the rain puddled down
accenting the hard breaks,
tears turned to muddy hues.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
