Claude Debussy

Written for:  Poetic Asides #506
“For today’s prompt, pick a composer, make him or her the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible composers could include “Ludwig van Beethoven,” “Johann Sebastian Bach,” and “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.” Or you could get more contemporary with composers like “John Williams,” “Meredith Monk,” and “Unsuk Chin.” Or even go with songwriters like “Billy Joel,” “Kate Bush,” and “Kim Deal.”

Clair de Lune is moonlight.
Each time I hear
those first
few notes,
I am transported
to a land
of romance
and music.
Stars dance,
moon expands
from arc
of light
to beam
enfolding mysterious shadows.

Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 506

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
