Poem: Jazz Love

Jazz Love

It is improvisation,
this love of ours,
a mix of melodies
harsh and tender,

dancing from chaos and fear
to a sweet song nearly,
but never quite,
in unison.


The picture was taken in Venice, Italy. You can click on it for a larger version.

Not too mad for jazz, Tom, but I like your poem!

Lyn said...

This has a lovely rhythm ..I could dance to it!

Merisi said...

You got rhythm! ;-)

Did you take the photo at the Artemio Versari Collection in the San Maurizio church? Walking into that place I feel immediately transported to some other time. The last time I was there, Pachabel's Canon in D was filling the air.

Yes! What a small world that you would know it!

Was back there today!
