Video of Rick McVicar performing poetry.

Text and video by Rick McVicar

Music makes me smile 

After I’ve been sad awhile. 

I have no need to frown 

When sound reverberates off my brow. 

I see colors of orange, red and brown 

When the pulsating beat comes around. 

The sound of triumph appears

 Filling the cavities in my ears. 

I tap my fingers on my chair

 Forgetting all of my cares. 

The melody progresses nicely along

As I think of new words to a song.

Perhaps I will write my own lyric

Without anxiety or fear

Of making a mistake or two.

I just don't want to sing the blues.
