Michael J. Del Signore

With the winter light
Limited as it will be
Backlighting distance

I drop the needle
With a quiet growl and crunch
On Thelonious

Syncopating sound
In opposition to life
Which is more metered

Piano forte
With left hand harmony bass
Right hand reaching out

Twirling and creeping
Transcending and yet absorbed
In the melody

The first star appears
A Crepuscule with Nellie
Until ’Round Midnight

Faded light and love
Knowing the darkness will bring
Some serenity

No noise and no thoughts
Elevated consciousness
Suggested by Monk
