The Music Of Your Soul – A Quadrille

The Music Of Your Soul

As darkness came
the dulcet tones
of your voice filtered through
the still night air
I would hang on to every word
falling from your lips
Each syllable perfectly enunciated
creating the beautiful
Music of your soul
Smiling I danced to its sweet melody

Linda Lee Lyberg is hosting Monday Quadrille at D’Verse.  Her prompt is ‘Music’
A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words excluding the title.

Let it Flow

Let it Flow

My soul, a river flowing
Its water not always clear
A tempest stirring trouble
Pushing obstacles in its path
Yet it navigates well
and moves on its journey

My heart, along for the ride
Open, vulnerable
Not always strong enough
to handle the bumps and bruises
of this voyage
Hanging on for dear life

Medicine For The Soul – A Soliloquy

Medicine For The Soul

A wafer-thin moon appears
in the late afternoon sky
Pale as milk and semi-transparent
Mirroring my mood of this day
Having fallen by the wayside
of everyday life
Feeling as fragile as a crumbling cracker
being spread with ice cold butter 
Jarred by the day’s impossible round
of bare-knuckle punches
Rejected, insignificant
Weary from the extraordinary efforts
I managed to perform without regard or thanks
Taking a deep breath I stare
at the simple beauty before my eyes
The transformation from a gossamer moon
to a thick cheesy ball smiling back at me
I sense my equilibrium being restored
as my body drinks the medicine for my soul

Victoria C. Slotto is guest hosting Meeting art the Bar at D'Verse tonight
and has prompted us with the Soliloquy.

Soliloquy is a form of speech spoken aloud by a character but addressed to no one except his or her self. The purpose of the soliloquy is to allow the audience to get a glimpse of the character’s inner thoughts and feelings while keeping them hidden from the other characters. The soliloquy differs from a monologue in that the latter is spoken so that other characters may be made privy to the speaker’s point of view. A soliloquy can express thoughts, emotions, intentions, plans and desires. It can influence the unfolding of the plot and can create irony.
