Listening to Bluegrass Music

Strumming,
picking melodies,
fingers blurring like
a hummingbird's wing beats

four part harmony
sliding into improvisation

a finger picking banjo,
percussion chop chords
of a mandolin,
a plucked bass

songs
of lost love
railroads
gospel

Something Got Hold of me
circles around the room
like an old time preacher
