Did You See That?

June 21, 2011

Bopping my head...
Slightly swaying...
And rocking...

As I did so
I caught a sharp twist of hand
A strum across the strings
An able move towards the neck
A clear note
Then a great chord
Moving right on along
From one great swift pluck
To a strum and stray
Til it hit that great chord once again
As if all moments were centered
Around that one great moment
When the fingers hit the chord
And the hand
Emblazened it back into the strings
Forged that chord
Back into the strings
Til it took off on a roll
That took on a life of its own
And made the night dance
Bouncing off of every damn wall in the place.
