    I like to listen to the hush
    When I feel the heat of day
    Warm my face as I stare
    Out the wall of windows;

    I close my eyes to the silence
    Awaiting for the music in my
    Mind to become a reality in my
    Soul as I rest my head on the glass;

    I hear the slow strum of the bass
    A quiet harmonic rhapsody telling
    The story of life in the lines of
    a peace filled style of smooth;

    I see the trumpet leaning against
    The bar fingering the keys looking
    For the note to mesh with the flow
    Of the soothing mellow bass line;

    He never lifts his head keeping a
    Hint of secrecy under his pulled
    Over brim as he whet his lips to
    Begin to dance with the bass line;

    He slides the funnel in the end as
    He begins to play the notes of life
    Melodies of love and pain through
    His instrument of emotions;

    His pace is meticulous and yet he
    Never hesitated to think about the
    Next line for his allows his heart
    To be the conductor of this melody;

    I am consumed by an embrace of
    the bass with the melody as they
    flow together as one in my soul
    guiding me to a musical peace.

    it's deep, right?
    when you allow the music to surround you
    and you then become a part of it
    as it embraces all of you
    sweet flow

    Sweet 16 or twelve to the bar, a chorus of this, a scat of that and mixed together--I think I've been jazzed--Ra
