Musical Notes

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – #204
Times They Are A-Changing
If you pay any attention to the world, it is apparent that times are changing. A lot is changing. This week we enter into a thankful time on Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, with a quick transition (thanks or not to Black Friday) into the Christmas Season. The stores are already in full regalia and the radio stations have begun to intone Holiday music in earnest. The weather here has changed in a day from 71 degree sunshine yesterday, to 39 degree snow storm with extreme winds today. Changes, changes, changes!

For years I knew
each rock group and song.
Hearing each tune
I could sing along.

Now when engaged
in Tournament of Teens
on Jeopardy’s stage,
I stare mutely at screen.

When Grammy time comes ’round
I no longer tune in,
but recall groaning sounds
parents made hearing Dylan.

If you have teenagers
best to be tolerant
of their music phases.
Should scream rise, swallow it.

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 in the process of returning to 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.
