Fawn’s Piano

By Donald Leslie Meldrum, PsyD of Clinical Psychology & Poet


To aspire and inspire

The breath fresh and clean

As notes become chords

And melody becomes harmony.

It is the transition that grips the heart

The hidden beat, the pulse of music

The flow measured as the fingers fall

And what emerges unshackled, is.

It heals the tattered heart

It seeks the beast to tame.
