A Poem by Jose

Posted September 8, 2010 & filed under Notebook.


Today time is blue
like a jazz musician
playing his saxophone.
Same thing,
same routine.
But the beat
carries me along.

Then, I hear something that makes a beautiful noise. I look here and there. I look almost everywhere. Then I see a tree. It speaks to me and tells me that if I think of music, I’ll find the beautiful sounds.

So, I think of music and what do I see? I see a multi-colored butterfly looking at me. It says that if I follow it, I will see where that music is. When we get there I see that where the music comes from is from me.
