The exquisite poem below was written by Eric Miller in response to the following video posted in this article.  I was so taken by the beauty of the poem that I simply had to share it and the author with the world.  All spelling and formatting are specifically as the author has written them with no alterations.  It is my first blog offering to start off the New Year.

 


jazz singer
 
 
she's decorated
 
in black
 
understated
 
elegant
 
ready
 
to deliver
 
a speech
 
to a
 
body
 
that hangs
 
on every word
 
 
 
she sways
 
rooted
 
to the soul
 
of
 
the tree
 
autumn leaf
 
gently
 
affirming
 
the wind
 
outstretched arms
 
beckoning
 
soaring
 
on melody
 
 
 
she sings
 
to
 
the accompaniment
 
of
 
clinking
 
champagne glasses
 
the rush
 
of waiters
 
passing by
 
trays laden
 
with houvre d'oeuvre
 
for
 
the masses
 
a steady
 
chattering
 
din
 
 
 
she notices
 
those
 
around her
 
as much
 
as they
 
notice
 
her
 
lost in
 
her song
 
and they
 
in theirs
