Wind Chimes

20 Jul

by Nancy Scott

Bells perched upon near air. 
Time’s whim of tinsel
floating seconds between
roaring trucks and
summer’s windows-open car bass.
Harmonies of brass
almost breathe melodies remembered.
Measures mark place
and somewhere tuned beyond place
never needing more than one octave.
Each person thinks
but rarely mentions
that only he hears
and only she appreciates
the extra push
before rounding the corner.

    Enjoyed the poem. Thank you for posting this. I am curious as to what a chapbook is?

      A chapbook is a small publication of ballads, poems or tales. Many poets with a growing collection of poetry will publish them. Thanks for reading Vision Through Words and your interest.
