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
