playing the piano

playing the piano poem by steven james humphreys

play the piano

listen to the notes

phantom sounds

in the wind

we wrote

travel together

through another’s

open window

nonsensical keys

a dreaming melody

of butterflies dancing

in fields of grass

and golden poppies

memories like no other

wake in joyful songs

listening and not

in strongest voices…

perhaps we

shall dream

in our warm bed

forever more.
