Bardic Legacy

Taliesin* the Bard is living and well
With history’s poems and stories to tell,
To wisdom of ages and sages impart,
Thru sharing of spirit and soul-stirring harp.
I carry his legacy, answer the call
With quiver of
zither
and poem and song.

*Pronounced Tal-ee-EH-sin


A second “quiver” Quadrille for
dVerse.

Positive Extinction

Pain and sorrow,
Bleak tomorrows,
Loneliness, depression deep…
You believe it,
Think you see it:
You’re not worthy of your dreams…

In this world of churning changes,
Couldn’t these become extinct?

Likely no,
So may we grow
In all the good we can perceive!


My Quadrille in response to Linda’s “extinction” prompt at
dVerse.

Nick of Time

Nick O’Brien started crying:
What’s the point of life?
Never trying, always sighing,
Glaring at his wife.

Nicky’s spirit got to hear it –
Whisper deep inside…
Came to cheer and left his fearing,
Swallowing his pride,
Sharing burdens, joys and hurting,
Letting love abide.


My “nick” Quadrille for De at
dVerse.

Tranquility Test

When I quit the quirks of thinking
Without fretting on my fate;
When I shift the ship that’s sinking
With lamenting fear of late…
If my soul, in seeking solace
Finds rest for resting’s sake,
Then tranquility’s a chancy chance
My mindfulness can take!


My “tranquility” Quadrille for Lillian at
dVerse.

Ancient Voice

My mind and body still recall
The years I cherished most of all,
When I played piano all through day and night.
I learned to laugh; I learned to sing.
I learned to cope with anything;
An ancient voice that speaks my spirit bright.

Original Songs

Not every song I wrote on piano was in 3/4 or waltz time, even though all of these are. 🙂

In the Meantime

Shalom! Baruch Haba!
