Here are the first three poems: dogs, guitars and nonfunctional hands.
Solid, semi-hollow, hollow bodied
Reverberating from within out
Projecting sweet noise at a pluck, a strum.
Amped, noise picked up and sent on through
The head and speaker.
Turn of the dials:
Clean, smooth, like one savors a truffle
Turn again to feel
The pulse of distortion, heartbeat that drives the pit.
Loose and out of tune or right on standard pitch;
Add a pedal, even quite a few:
Head off to the stratosphere
Off to six feet under.
Instrument of Godliness to throngs of fans.
A brush that paints dollars for some
And art for the rest.
This is where I will be posting poems that I decide the world should get to see, my virtual poetry gallery if you will. These poems will have a wide range of subject matter from animal based poems about my horse, cats or dogs; to music related poems that talk of guitars, bands and genres; to poems about nature and the creatures of this blue marble we call Earth; to poems that let normal people into the shell I live in everyday. …And more as the inspiration comes. No interest will be left behind on this crazy journey.
I hope you’ll enjoy the viewing, and visit often. Hey, maybe this will even turn into a book or two one day. A girl can dream, right?
