Dust off the piano keys,
And come dance with me.
Even if it’s temporary and imaginary,
Please . . . . this is for special company.
You, like so many others may experience some sort of pain,
Anyone who lives with it knows it can feel like a clogged drain.
Everyone needs a way to cope,
Because that’s what gives us hope.
So let’s use art,
Just for a start.
Pain needs a distraction,
Or it gains traction.
Let’s take about 4 minutes of your time,
And then hopefully you’ll begin to understand why.
Fred Astaire was before my time, but as piano keys are ebony and ivory,

How do I know?
I’ve watched this repeatedly. Music and videos I’m not familiar with bring me relief. We all need a way to cope in life. Some just haven’t had to stare it in the face . . . . yet.
This is a basic technique of many to help you relax. Music, photography, a bit of poetry, support, and sincere camaraderie.
This writer crosses many genres, and cannot be placed in a box . . . . there’s that.
