Poem: “To the Beat of my Drum” #poetry

(Image property of FBC. Omnia Caelum Studios València. All Rights Reserved)

I look through the window with eyes in the sky,

then I look to the east,

crows flying by,

my mind on the music,

hands on the drum,

and I wonder how how far and how long

will I roam…

Till I change,

till I rise,

till the rhythm resumes for a while,

and I rest weary hands,

and I count a few bars,

and I pick up my rhythm again

and I start…

Heartfelt solo of beats that will wither

and dry in the frozen dark sky,

on the cottony grass,

on the fertile grey ocean,

on the mountain with rain,

time is always the same,

and I’ll beat on this drum

till my hands bleed in pain.

        Way ahead of you amigo. At a winery enjoying an excellent glass of Chardonnay with cheddar and Gouda cheese with a fresh 🍞 baguette. Lovely Blue Ridge Mountains with sunshine, light breeze, and little humidity. No crowds yet.

    1. More than three have and that is a sign. I will work on it, but since I am still far from home it may be a while…
