‘Light Notes’ … another poetic collaboration between Martin Shone and Jane Thorne.

Martin and I have been busy creating again and this is our latest poem….

Light Notes

Incoming on a band of pure gold
touching nature and souls on the way
the thrum of a double bass
on notes so pure
an energy all-encompassing
flooding tired eyes

Trees look up
Trees look around
Trees look down
Trees look at light
all around them
and smile
for without light
there are no trees

Souls catch the light
Souls spin in joy
Souls sing with abandon
Souls feel
and smile
for without light
souls merely exist

and so this rose

is soul
is light
is pure
is nature

and so this rose
opens its petals
sometimes fragrant
sometimes not
always colourful
always smiling
for it is the
which makes
a rose such a beautiful thing

and so this rose


upon notes of love

    Niiiiiiice :-). I agree with Rose, you can pick up some of the threads, like gold and silver entwined in the tapestry, belonging to each of you… but some are so ‘of the soul’s spirit’ the author cannot be deciphered. Great job!

    This one has a lot of Martin in it in the “smiling” and the line forms. It also has a lot of Jane in it in the postive and joyful upbeat tone! You guys are really sweeping me off my feet with your fine partnership! Keep it going, you Brits!


I love to hear from you and having different perspectives are what this is all about.....so feel free to let me know what you think.....
