trains of music – after Laura Nyro

Here, another.  

 

Trains of Music — (after Laura Nyro)       

 

Satellites tip

as music soaks

the ground with satin

and whiskey

 

the long view

is not

this one

the short view

where details 

havoc and

the long branching trees

are on

fire in

this

strong windy

corridor

of the staggering long

elevator city  

 

this

night where

A Laura Nyro moon

shines full on and

radiant         

From this view

 

And then another

As clouds escape

 

on a musical elation

Mountain — Poem 30 on the 30th day of NaPoWriMo

So, it’s the end of the road for NaPoWriMo!  For me, quite a journey.  I do thank all who read and continue to read.  I will keep this Hypotenuse Wolf blog and update from time to time, either with new work, or — with commentary on poetry, or various forms of writing/art/music/film and cultural events.  However, Hypotenuse Wolf will have always poetry as a foundation — one way or another. I’ll be adding a blog roll or links too, at least a few.  So, keep reading.  I am taking a break though first, for a few days at least.  It’s been fun!  And, for me, expanding! 

 

Mountain                                                             Max Wolf Valerio

 

the mountain

a song

elemental

and open

from here

two psalms

a staff and a

long winding

entrance

to tears and

prophecy 

 

the mountain

unseen

above clouds

the apex

a crown

fire from the head

breach of secrecy

an opening

 

mountain

surfaces

collapse and shift in

stages 

night winds

transform

perception

 

the lookout

on the mountain top

scribe of subconscious

forms

rejuvenation
