Above- a room of mine, with a Monk Painting and a photo of Monk’s Hands. John Hoppy Hopkins. Above the Piano.

My words to a Monk tune Blue Monk

Feeling complete – watching my feet –

-walking down the Milky Way.

Only in dreams – such wonderful scenes –

-impossible to stay away.

It takes some doing- but – listening to Monk’s the way.

Flying out to join the rhy- thm.


Taking a note – exploring a chord –

improvise’s the game to play.

Throwing the dice – take no advice. Dangerous to some I know.

His fingers flying-

Laying out a rug for magic – dan-cing.

Sliding on stones –

tripping on keys – only angels Sing in space

Taking a dive – but staying alive –

 checking out the other place

On arrival- it takes a while to step inside-

Join your heart and voice and sing it. xx
