The Keys of Life

One step beyond time

on the keys of life

the beautiful music we played

when we sang

and danced

and laughed

and ran through the years

wind in our face

hair flying


no worries

no struggles


Yes…play a song for me

on the keys of life

dance backwards

and the years erase

the lines on my face

the scars on my heart

The soul becomes free

to sing like a bird

in opera tones

without constraints

a life lived simply

on the keys of life




Many blessings my friends…may you all play beautiful music on the keys of life!!

The Zentangle”esque” art started with the floating “ribbon” piano keys.  They appeared in my mind, the way many words do, like a neon sign behind my eyes.  I sketched the keys and the rest is history.  The art was created over the past month and a half.  I had a bout of insomnia a night ago and the art finished itself…and the poem flowed from my pen.  Have a blessed Monday!  ❤ Lorrie

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.
