Soul Notes: A Poem

bitter hauntings…
fading palettes
of vibrant days,
draining colors
puddling upon the earth,
leaving only shades of gray-

Soul Notes
In honor of Mary Kate
june 19, 2017

                the world has lost its color

quietly I sit,
listening, for soul notes-
small harmonic sounds of crystal rays;
hope-filled filaments, quivering
vibrating pitches
                in purpled lilacs,
                in pastel pinks,
                and sky blues,

holdfast
to the softness
sweet sorrow
                the world has lost its color

I pray the Angels sing me home
as I have, no coin to pay.
