Whoever Has Ears (18b)

WHOEVER HAS EARS

Köln Concert
Over and over
With you then
Without you
Music you can rely on
Others … Not so much

As Jazz Is (16b)

AS JAZZ IS

Love you like
Miles, Coltrane, Jarrett
Who needs a
Safety net?
Life and death are one to me
With you beside me

Mea Culpa

MEA CULPA

Life is singing you hear
Hear music in your heart
But when you try singing
You find you’re out of tune

Now That’s What I Call Editing!

And A Good Time Was Had By All

When Poetry Works (A Four By Six)

WHEN POETRY WORKS

Warp and weft sounds spouting
A lingual waterfall
Calling forth a mist of
Insubstantial rainbows

Goin’ Home

GOIN’ HOME

You have your keyboard with you
plus I see you brought your keys along too.
As for me: I have as you see brought my horn along.

No bass required to intervene, as agreed. Too basing.
No superfluous traps either. A binding promise.
Let’s go play the blues then. Melt into one another’s I’s

Country sounds good (when using ears rather than eyes)
while delta seems inviting also. Finger style?
I’m more than willing if that’s your choice.

Twelve bar, sixteen bar, thirty-two bar if you like.
Muddy water. Let’s dive in and search for a pearl.
Fare thee well. Forever. See you on that other shore.

Five Day Song Challenge: Day Two

Audrey Dawn – The Oldest Daughter & Red Headed Sister suggested I address myself to meeting this challenge. Two difficulties arise: I. as long time readers will know, I have already posted a number of my favourites so they aren’t eligible; 2. I am by necessity limited to tracks which are freely available on line. In retaliation I decided not to further restrain myself to sticking solely to tracks with lyrics.

2. Arthur Honegger, Pastorale d’été.
