Neville

Listen Through the Breeze

Listen Through the Breeze

 

Although you may never hear

his mandolin again

Except for maybe on the wind

It would be such a crying shame

if not, indeed a sin

Should you never listen for it

every now and then …

And whilst we are both here

right now

I think that you should know

There are certain

shades and tones I never want

you caught in, ever ..

Such is the legacy of a yesterday

gone oh’ so terribly wrong

So wrong in fact, we might need

prayers mid streams

of precious fairy lights and bunting

And get this ..

I never want you choreographed

For that would be

too much to ask, but want you

So much more

than I did once want you ..

In those flimsy

turquoise triangles, those which,

With all respect

barely covered anything at all

But then you know that don’t you …

    Am listening hard after reading this bit of familiar intrigue and thinking I can hear - maybe - - that romantic mandolin - I love this legacy of a remembered yesterday Nev - - now left for readers to unfold their own ending.......... x

      Did you get it together again or not, Nev?
      Great flow with some depth - I'm not quite sure just how it was resolved with all that baggage.....

      • Neville



        we did indeed but only briefly .. sometimes I guess baggage is a blessing in disguise ... maybe πŸ™‚

        Those times passed can be so wonderful but also so sad Neville.

              'I never
              want you: choreographed
              For that would be, too much
              to ask'..
              without spontaneity, dear Poet
              where would we hang our hopeful hats
              that hide, those ever regressing hairlines
              of our regretted, shouda - woulda's of life..
              (subtly, incisive: poetic brilliance
              uniquely
              at your very best, my friend)
