Ode to an Ode

Free verse is the jazz of poetry 
making love to the sounds 
and meanings of words 
strung winding on phrases 
pregnant of semantics and syntax
sensing a true beat 
from the rhythm of life 
caught in the essence of a verbal hymn, 
a glyph for the graphic mind 
etching a hint of the unknown 
and unknowable, human and divine, 
biblically storied, 
a lovers prayer,
perfunctory and profound, 
touching the sacred orb, 
sordid to soaring,
delightfull and morbidly frightening,
transcending lingua platz
for a home all its own,
a notecard from the author
visiting and
sitting in the band of you.
