Susan At The Keyboards.

I am in awe of you,

though you can only tell

by my voice

when I congratulate you

on your performance;

a woman of absolutes

and fingers on keyboards

playing as if guided by a rock

and roll angel,

you are magnificent.


I watch you burn the keys,

so nimble, so impressive,

I have to hold my breath as you play

and create images

that I could never offer

to a world,

though blind, you are not unsighted

as in my paused breathing,

you see me watch you, and that smile,

as radiant as a Sun beam in June,

captures a new song,

for all to take under their wing.


Dedicated to Susan Hedges.
