musical chord

Carpe Diem honors Jane Reichhold (1937-2017) B.) musical chord (tanka)


like chords of music
the words of her pen
stroke our souls
inspiring our voices to
blend in vision-filled songs


windswept cliffs
weathering another storm
icy salt waters
grinding the stone face into
next summer's warm sands

water-colored words
filling the void
with silence
giving balm to hearts
yet to be born

a queen
not forgotten
bejeweled
with compositions
by her disciples
