a raspy jazzy voice
running the scales
turns my clock
into dali’s inspiration
while the sax
smooth as butter
sliding me home
smooth as butter ! Great use of words !
Thank you T!
are you dancing over here?….smiles
You know it! How about you?
Love me some blues. 🙂
Hmm, you said raspy so it’s not Ella. Nat, maybe? He’s slightly raspy but still pretty doggone smoooooooth.
This makes me want to sing “Unforgetable.” 🙂
All ears! 🙂
Oh goodness! Not sing in real life! Honey, people would pay me NOT to sing! I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!
I only sing in my head, where I am always on key. 😀
lol Me too. I shocked one of my friends one year by calling and leaving a voicemail of me singing her happy birthday. It was actually kind of liberating. I figured she had the delete button handy if it was as bad as I imagined.
Yes, life can be a little jazzy sometimes!
There’s some perfect timing for me on this one Jaymie. Thanks!!
So welcome my friend!
one line poem,
one million smiles
upon hearing the music. 🙂
I hear it, I see it, taste it even – I wish I could play it. 😉
Oooh, I love Jazz, Jaymie. You got me on this one and the list is very long for these favorite singers.
Glad to hear of our mutual appreciation! 🙂
i love it Jaymie. i am a sucker of poetry of music and this one is fabulous..
I snuck in an art reference too. Check out “The Persistence of Memory”. Poetry, music, and art….it is a beautiful world.
2010 can be the year that you learn to play the sax! Good idea? 🙂
Well, 2010 is supposed to be the year I become employed again, take up painting/drawing again, return to my knitting, and read at least 2 books a month. I’m afraid the limited remaining time would make me a horrible student. Perhaps 2011?
Well….I will have to think about this one! LOL 🙂 Hope all is well!
All IS well Luisa! 🙂
My first intention was to comment on my favorite line but every line before it and after it became my favorite as well after reading the poem about six times. Very nice, Jaymie. Very nice, indeed. I really like ‘smooth as butter
sliding me home” I think that is what makes the poem “jazzy” for me.
Do you think I should have used a pic of Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory” or would that be overkill?
wonderfully sensual. oh my . . .
so your a fan of jazz too? 😉
Loved it! Great use of words, indeed.
starting new classes has kept me too busy – this if lovely – eases and sooths a rush of sound running up and down through time pouring forth so blue and jazzy – such fun this one feels to me tonight.
I’m jealous! Writing classes?
