Melodies Carry Me Up And Away

(This was supposed to be posted a while ago – apparently I accidentally made it a draft instead of publishing it. πŸ˜… Oops.)

It’s week 32 of 100 Word Wednesday and here is the photo and my response. πŸ™‚ If you’d like to join in, just click the link! πŸ˜‰ The rhyming pattern on this one is a bit unusual; I’m not sure how it happened, it just… did. πŸ˜…

I love this image, BikurGirl! 😍

Walking down the street
Sky is blue of cerulean type,
Clouds are puffy and whimsical
Yet my soul is downcast

Was dragging my feet
When tunes threatened to wipe
Away sadness with musical
Splendor; sadness couldn’t last.

Melodies carry me up and away
Dancing along strings
Floating as me it brings,
To places I hadn’t been in years.

Took me back in the day:
Church choir singing,
On those Sunday mornings;
It brought me to tears.

Such sweet songs it was,
Oh, how strings and wood
Can create beauty
And bring nostalgia within!

I felt God’s perfect love
Saw the choices; I could
Go back to His mercy –
And be forgiven.
