Prophecy


You sent this song to me –
no words,
just ellipses…

Two rests between the chords
to breath
spontaneously

I hum upbeat motive
in heart
with caution

How thoughtful your advice
to use
percussion

Laptop’s keyboard – in smoke
from open
‘Offices’

Add music, words to rhythm -
affirm
self prophecy…

  2. Having a little hum, and beating to ones own drum, way to be, as one steps back to see
