I Played A New Song

I Played A New Song short poem

Photo by Haifeez

I played a new sound
between strings held in tension
untaught fingers
creating magic with the ear
I liked the sound of me
unchained melody
tiptoeing between
the rhythm of my beating heart
I hum a song
hardly sung before
words in silence
making perfect sense
tapping my feet
to the beat of the drops of water
on the rooftop
I jump on my feet
and sway to the wind
dance with the gale
and weep with the rain
I sing in harmony
in the present.
I carry on on the road ahead
on my greatest trip
a journey to myself.
Hello me.

My adorable academic sanctuary, My big citadel of intellectual prowess, where ignorance is consigned to an ossuary for the once inherent and nagging backwardness. Any who treads your academic trajectory is numbered with the doyen of enlightened ones. Your young
