Lunatic Virtuoso

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille – 4 – grin


The crescent moon has almost disappeared

A Cheshire cat grinning at my madnessCheshire Cat

Silver smugness

Reminiscent of my aunt’s Buddha

Rotund on the mantelpiece

Smiling down at four-year-old me

BuddhaPlaying the ebony

Notes on the upright piano

A virtuoso

Only Buddha didn’t think so
