A Melody

a sweet melody could be heard
drifting slowly along on the wind
it was familiar
yet I couldn’t recognize it

A calmness swept over me
as the notes soothed my soul
I closed my eyes, letting the melody
carry me along on the wind

something about the melody
was bringing back memories
memories of earlier poems
I had written years ago

I smiled as I realized
the music was motivating me
inspiring me to write more
of the poetry I loved

I opened my eyes
picked up my notebook
and my pen
and started writing
