bend to rebound

bow on the string melancholy
draws back and forth so slow
melody sounds slow slowly
draws a note the notes
flight the flight of bamboo
bend like wind and winds
silent salient pluck plucked
a willow bends in silence
not the rush flight of bamboo
to bend and not break
willow bends and then breaks
oh we must bend to rebound
willow not bamboo bends
winds breaks us all as bow
to string sings melancholy
draws back and forth so slow
bow on the string melancholy
a willow bends in silence
wind goes where it wants to go
not the bow on the string
melodies yet to be sung
bend as bamboo and break like willow
oh we must bend to rebound
silent salient pluck plucked
bow on the string melancholy
draws back and forth so slow
melodies sound slow slowly
plucked pluck salient silent
bend bend bend shout rebound
…bow and string


bow to string sings east west north and south like the wind going where it wants to go and we bend and rebound…the human spirit is unbound…and you hear it unless you are deaf…it is rushed and thrashed by the winds of uncertainty a string plucked with little melodies…and the wind carries it if you bend and do not break…pluck plucked salient silent…stilled and broken unless you rebound…bow and string…tucked away in The Book of Ruminations.

…forever dyslexic one word less is one word more…design follows the eye before the shape shifts into form…when two hearts beat as one nirvana bliss a blink of joy…we are stardust star stuff of serendipity…art is a business of commodities for sale…caveat emptor oh yes for sure one woman’s junk is another man’s treasure…make me laugh and i am yours…
