sang queen

sang queen

A Poem by Shirlena
"

from a movie scene and music

"

only one description could suffice

watching her Chablis skinned volupte’ slightly lighten hair

in flattering glow highest compliment

affixed two toned keys

being soft and strong singing geyser earthy

full out woman pleading to be adjusted

and it felt like my throat feeling her range

I wanted it to be possible or my emotions wanting to rain

allowing water fall she barely choked

as much as my heart sprang arms reaching to comfort her figure

in a setting they couldn’t possibly engage

sisters connected heads hands grasped from the knees

with a choir suddenly appearing  brightened at

a muted corner platform

voicing harmonies vigorous with force that had no rights

tapping in with such brilliance stirring soul flowers

hang gliding as music blooming

igniting repressed anguish to the unspeakable ledge

 

she repeated the verse for the last time

compelling with her conclusion

 

 “Lord fix me”

In the vigor of your force, I'm voicing harmonies. I'm gliding along the music of originality. You have connected the gasping with the grasping. Excellent...:)..........................

This is such a brilliant poem. being a musician, I can intimately relate with the power behind the song and how music can refresh emotions long repressed.

This is a controlling piece. It had me hooked and intrigued me until its end. Great work.

Hi Shirlena)))))))))) "Lord fix me" now there's a nice thought!
this is a wonderfully composed set of emotions that stirred the scene and allowed the the reader to watch the joy and inspiration... don't know the movie or the scene, but after this description, I sure do... the exuberance you inject warms my room... love and respect what you create! xx
