Incomplete Melody

image

Sometimes I sing in incomplete rhymes.
I write in crayon and leave
my shoes beside the sandbox.
I sign my letters with x and o.
I ponder in doubt, the crisscross musings
speaking out loud.

Sometimes a woman needs
flowers out of season, homegrown vegetables,
sex, and easy to read instructions.
Instead she meditates on ice cream
and the Home Shopping Channel.
Attempts to become enlightened.
Prays to paper and pen.
Looking for an all encompassing view.
Hoping for an all embracing embrace.
She offers herself to drumbeat and sage.
The rhythm under the air, turns her heart
to some inferior door, finding something buried
in red.

  1. Oh, I like this very much, Tosha — enjoy the playfulness of it. And the song, which I’m ashamed to say is unfamiliar to me, is quite lovely; your voice is lovely as well. πŸ™‚

      1. Huh! Did you just check it? I did and it worked on my end, but earlier I’d made it “private” only so that it put in on a “pause.” Let me know it it still doesn’t work. I just paid WP the yearly $ for the cdogco.com thingie (technical term, lol).

    I love it, and feel it. We all need breaks, and variety is the spice of life! Your voice is so beautiful, and enchanting lady. My oh my. I think you can join Daniel Craig, eating crackers in my bed…as long and you promise to sing me to sleep. πŸ™‚

  3. Tosha, always brilliantly written, beautifully visual and so full of emotions. I absolutely adore the following,

    β€œThe rhythm under the air, turns her heart

    in red.”

    Wishing you a lovely day. ~ Mia
