For Daniel

After a hard day
I read a friend’s poem online,
phrases of evocative beauty

and I play the music he posted.
Its sonorous notes roll over me
sweet, and I lose myself.

For a long, deep moment, I want
to be eaten up by it, swallowed whole,
stay there forever, but I shake myself free.

  1. To react like this is the sign of a word-lover. To be transported for even just a little while is a gift.
