walking into sound

Rain Dance by Tera Zajack

toward polaroid doorways

the gasping mouths

of windows

washboard walls

and yes

the rain

it's

leaning

I don't need stairs

I take the slow

slope

over cobbles that are really

stepping stones gathering to roost

I am inside the instrument

walking into sound

that mouthpiece arch

the closed

lips of memory
 
 
Offered as part of a poetics prompt challenge over at Dverse Poets inspired by the art of Tera Zajack with thanks to Brian Miller

Thought the finish absolute perfection! Unique and inspiring take on a fantastic piece of art. The combination of both is brilliant! Way to play the prompt!

The washboard walls and the cobbles that are really stepping stones - these did it for me.
