GloPoWriMo – Day 15


They say Bach composed cantatas during a pandemic
They say Bach sang chorales while those around him fell sick

But I know G
is the frequency
to make each cell in the body
vibrate in healing harmony

They say cellos sound most like the voice
of your lover, mother, boyfriend, spouse

I hear Bach talk
kitchen murmur
kettle simmer
quiet chat of him, her

Lose your parents, your first wife, your ten kids
out of twenty, you might choose intervals the church forbids

I’ll play!
I’ll bow.
I’ll live through
my cello.

Daily Prompt:  “write a poem inspired by your favorite kind of music,” from Na/GloPoWriMo.
