One or two words
Explodes under the sky
Watching it burn, watching it destroy-
Only to slow down the crossing of
The boundary of the simile and metaphor.
The form and style infuse
The meter and tempo to
A logical path, a careful walk
Only to bring the sunshine and shade
The forgotten pain and scar of the sharpened tip.
Agree that pen and paper can make
Music to solve the eternal puzzle,
To listen carefully, to discern good from bad
Only to lit up the works of life
The implicit expression of each and everything.
