Accordion MAG

By Kiran W., Queens Village, NY

      play the accordion

and I’ll watch as your fingers

sway across the cream-colored keys

it’s so beautiful, I close my eyes and

all I can hear are your lovely harmonies

being played like you’ve never stopped

you take me away from this four-walled room

into the forest where violet flowers are dancing slowly

the green in the grass is rich and soothing

and the sky, I can’t describe ... it’s beyond all the pictures in our heads.

for once let’s just forget all the soil-covered moments

and live in this gold that you’ve created.

play the accordion

and I’ll watch as your fingers

sway across the cream-colored keys

I think you should use more punctuation so it flows more. I think the poem is really pretty sounding, i think adding punctuation would only add to the awesomeness.

Good imagery, although I don't understand, why an accordion?
