Rainy Night Jazz

Rainy Night Jazz

Brushstrokes
Painted gently
Across the tops of
Drum cymbals
Moved me into that
Place of creative void
Which was eagerly
Awaiting my arrival

All disturbances
Retreated
To rain washed
City streets
Yellow taxis
Carried home fares
While pedestrians
Dodged rainfall
Newspapers were
Used as shields
Like umbrellas

I carried on
Unhindered
Sounds of trumpets
Filled my head
Passersby glanced up
To see me writing
At the table
Where I sat

Oblivious
To curious looks
Their movement
But a blur
Beyond my thoughts
That spilled across
The page.
