Trusting Erik Satie
I introduce myself to
As an absurdist.
Arianna Oct 2018
Drifting daydreams:
Of cotton snow and you,
Of the lazy daisy Delta blues
On honeysuckle afternoons;

Those heart-of-August, bluebell eves
Blooming powdery and warm
Around the magnolia tree
Where together, in time,
We’d have placed candles
And fairy offerings.

Now the years blossom long between us,
Though your fingerprints I see
Still peppering the dust
Strewn over the piano keys;
Your hands haunting:
Ghosts of a waltz,
Dancing rosy gymnopédies ⸺

How I held them dear!

Good times ⸺

A clair de lune rhapsody.
Picking memories from my garden,
And gathering them in a bouquet for you. :-)

"Gymnopédie No. 1" by Erik Satie:

Also, "Clair de Lune" by Claude Debussy
Levi Sep 2015
A gentle yet somewhat eccentric
The time stops and enjoys
My focus magnified
Like a certain high
Floating along with time
An unending nostalgia
Hair in my skin stands
Telling myself to breathe
I could just die right here
Its a romance in motion
An angels poem.
It's a piano piece, Gymnopédie # 1 by Erik Satie.
