Radio


Standing on a chair 
trying to reach the radio 
Appears angry and in a rush

She reaches the radio
and starts to change between it's channels. 
Then looks at the clock on her hand 
and starts to hit the radio 
while mumbling some ugly words. 

Finely she finds the channel, 
It is the music she likes, 
runs out to call the friends, 
to listen with her.

You ignorant of what you see 
Houses appears dormant 
until the evening. 
Families get together for this 
sound to sing and dance. 

Fantasying, imagining the dresses 
of the female singer and how elegant
 the musicians would look like.

I am wondering if the "she" of the first three stanzas is the female singer of the final one.

Brian Miller said...

this is fairly magical....families should do this more often...gather to dance and imagine...

S. Sharp said...

Yes families should gather more often listening to music not watching xFactor because imagination must be part of the evening.

Thank you Brian;)

shonejai said...

true, one cannot always know what lies behind closed doors.

Imagination in this one--a feeling of perhaps "outside looking in".
