‘Oh Ear’ a Sonnet

When your body moves, your brain grooves.

Jim Kwik

Well hello there friend. How are you doing today? Very well I hope.

Thanks for stopping by, your presence here always fills me with gratitude.

This year, I shed a tear not only in honor of those who lost their lives to the global pandemic that’s taken the world by storm, but also for all those times I missed out on blogging.

I won’t beat myself up too much for not blogging as much as wanted to, instead I’ll prime myself to be a better blogger next year.

It is exactly because I haven’t been blogging consistently, however, that I’m really appreciative for the fact that my blog has kept on growing.

It is because of people like you who take time out to visit even when I’m not here. For that, I wish you all the best for the coming new year.

For today, I will be sharing a sonnet I composed recently in the hope that it enhances your day in any way whatsoever. If it does don’t be shy to let me know in the comment section, I’m always happy to hear from you.

So without further adue…

Oh Ear!’ how happy I am you are here.
I know you’ve been by my side my whole life,
But before I could never see you clear,
So I’d not know if you could hear my voice.
But now that I can see you I can say
That without you my life would have been dull.
I don’t know without you beside my skull
If I’d even be able to dance for joy.
In fact, I’m not sure I want to find out.
I can’t imagine my life without you.
A life where to listen I have no clue
Will surely lead me to kick the bucket
For life’s a song and it demands dancing
But I can’t dance if I’m not listening.
