Story Time Friday: A poem from My Chapbook

New Year Story Time Friday Banner

Have you read my chapbook Winter’s Homecoming and other poems yet? It’s been out for a few years, so you may have gotten it already. But if you haven’t, I have a treat for you this month. It’s FREE in honor of National Poetry Month and to help spread poetry as far as I can.

I’m using this Story Time Friday to give you a sample from the book. It’s a short collection of only eight poems. So here’s an eighth of the collection to read! I hope that you enjoy this one and follow up with getting a copy of the full book. Again, it’s FREE. Kind of hard to pass up, right?

Notes from a Guitar

by Robert Zimmermann

A single tear
descends his
aged
skin in rivulets.

Collecting just above
the jaw line,
a tiny trickle
takes a doomed flight
toward Earth.

Fingers move slowly,
methodically.

Notes from a guitar
sing
through the hills
and valleys,

washed
with sadness.
