Music Box

The heart is like


Every time you open it

a note 

chimes out

and another and then another

until you realize

that all the tuned teeth plucking against

a cold

steel plate

harmonize into a single

Keep your music box open


never lock it

because something unexpected can happen:

an ordinary 

scientific phenomenon

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

can become a unicorn horn

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

that reaches up and out 

to find

while dreams lay buried

under the spell of winter's stillness.

I don't know how you do this but I'm thankful for the gift you've been given of gathering words that may just speak the heart of the music better than any that the composer may have been thinking of.

And your pictures, especially the one of each note springing as a golden chime out of the piano music box, are unforgettable.

Oh my gosh, that DOES look like a unicorn horn. Nature has dazzled you with extraordinary beauty, Anita. And it's still snowing there? I just love all these pictures, and this post is flowing with imagination and creativity. So wonderful.

Happy March Anita,
I love the icicles on my roof, but I have never imagined them as unicorn horns. . . until now.
You are dreamy beyond worlds!
Thank you for shifting my mind to see new possibilities in our winter wonderland.
Wasn't this morning enchanting with the blue skies and fresh snow everywhere? Winter's last goodbye??? If it was, what a gift! As are you, sweet friend.
