Above- my room, with a Monk Painting and above the Piano, a photo of Monk’s Hands by John Hoppy Hopkins.
My words to The Thelonious 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 –
Enjoying my bones, 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
Tripping on keys – notes cascade – flying around my head.
