John-Ward Leighton


the day is cloudy bright
and the coffee is on
and everything in my little world
is right
but its kind of a slog
finding pictures for my blog
and the great man’s organ pieces
fill the void in my soul
and shut out the ordinary
for his genius extraordinary
I feel the hair standing
up on the back of my neck
and my little digs become
a pew in one of the grand cathedrals
I’m sure I’m driving my neighbours crazy
with the sound
much like hip hop I hear at three
does for me
drifting up from the street
from the boom box cars
whilst trying to get to sleep
but what the heck for today
at my work and play
its a Bach kind of day
