The Underwood

The Underwood

I’ve decided to turn off the computer for a bit and go back to typing. I got my hands on an Underwood this weekend fell in love. To read most of these you’ll have to find me in the real world, or you could always order an original for yourself through the email link to the right. I do take requests. The live performance component of the poem composition is still in rehearsal, but will be coming to sidewalks and festivals soon.

Here’s a photo of a sample from the first batch:

To the dance

Drum kick drives the foot to the floor
Hip sweep at cymbal crash
while the bass runs up the spine.

Guitar solo follows the rib cage
Hammond rolls the curves
until keys shimmy the shoulders to fingertips.

Head weaves in the harmonies
eyes close to block out distractions
while the ears open wide in wonder.

Sunday morning reverie

Cleansing rain washes away the week
as I rise from sleep
reconnecting, reflecting, & resurrecting
a dream.

Sunshine clears the clouds
that blur my vision.
Cardinal, finches, & wrens
sing in my heart.

Grace has taught my soul
I have more to give than withhold
release, rise, & rejoice
with love.
