Think and You are There

 

I am often heard but not understood in my speech
Though you may call me crazy I’m at perfect rest
My mind opts to flee this mountain for the beach

Thoughts inside my head solidify with spoken words
Gases mixed together, once released become a breath
Without the shrill above me I may never see the bird

Lyrics without music is a poem never sung
Kisses without flavor dull the senses on my lips
I imagine ocean’s air and feel the salt upon my tongue

 

Linked to dVersepoets.com  Laura Bloomsbury is hosting featuring tercets with specified rhyme words coming from Raymond Garlick’s poem “Welsh-Speaking Sea“.

    “True” and “yes” are the words in my head while reading the remaining two paragraphs. Thank you Mary!
