Cool

“Cool”

The cool of breeze and heat of sun
caress the skin of morning walkers,

whose hips and feet with swaying strutting
and voices in high register,

meld world and self in full expression
and make an instant’s universe.

Key Two

“Key Two”

The pros and cons of music scoring
are evident for all to see.

For chanting, simple marks sufficed…
until polyphony was added.

Then changing keys made us rethink…
and led us to a new found glory.

Key

“Key”

The sambas of the bittersweet
help shape key moments in our lives.

Through syncopated changing rhythms
and mixing minor major chords
we find our true grit in the offbeat.

And others like us as our allies.

Unknown

“Unknown”

Within our mental universe
we feel we know what’s wrong and right
and thereby judge what’s true in life.

But certain rules we’d best keep secret
else cause reaction most adverse—
a wise and thoughtful act of foresight.

Edges

“Edges”

The smallest tick ‘the cosmic clock.
The farthest edge that stars are seen.
These catch at our imagination.

In finding limits to our knowledge
it seems somehow that we unlock
an urge for further exploration.
