An Old Song Plays In My Mind

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings, Prompt #338
"Hey, That's My Line" #5

"Take that “I wish I had written that” line from one of the poems posted at Poetic Bloomings, or of a poem you love, and for the moment, make it your own …  as the title of a totally new poem. But, be sure to credit the poet and poem from which it came.  Have fun!"

Unspooling like 
an old reel of film,
my mind unravels
the words of Maggie May
by Rod Stewart.  Husky
and rasping his voice
takes me back
to a time in my
twenties, when lover
was all I ever wanted
to be.  I listened 
to a lot of Rod Stewart.
Most people I know
associate music
they love with events
in their lives.  I am
awaiting the next 
tune to unwind.

(Line taken from Mike Bayles
 for the prompt of hard and soft)

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.
