Chemistry



Image by Karsten Hohmeier
Every now and then
a poem stays with me
or a line

gets stuck
in the groove of the vinyl
of my mind,

like you do,
and I let it play.

  10. __ Grand, Jen; the needle.

    I follow
    a coil that speaks this verse
    the needle

  12. I love when we can stay in that grove.. Like having that perfect flow... as always you manage to say a lot with few words.

  13. Yes, this resonates....those phrases - or connections - that inspire.

  15. I both love and hate ear worms--sometimes though, when we fall into that groove with someone else--it is just magic--

  18. How incredibly romantic ... unless one wishes to get unstuck! But I had the romantic sense first, because the narrator lets it play.

  19. " stuck in the groove of the vinyl of my mind" Wow! So evocative and layered: the chemistry of a lovely musing.

  22. gets stuck
    in the groove of the vinyl

    When one gets stuck in a tough situation 'in the groove' it is good to just move on and not be dragged back wasting precious time. Things will fall into place somehow! Nice write Jennifer!

  24. this is so simple, yet so amazing. that last line leaves the reader a bit breathless of the unshed possibility...
