notes ♫


strings  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~
in the twilight dissolve
of my darkening home ...
the sparkle of a memory
flickers in the hum drum

a fragile evocation  –
though I know I danced
in those moody strains
over the moon and under
far away stars

the trees outside my window
sway in breezes
and cascading notes
and glimmers of recall 
that swirl … in the sweet elusive
  
music   ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~
casting its serendipitous spell
conjures forth a wisp of past
to float and fall … by chance ...
upon a moment

note:  a tanka sequence
