Musical Progression

Written for the 10/9/13 Poetic Bloomings “In-Form Poet with RJ Clarken” prompt. This week, the poetry form is a Saraband, the description of which can be found at The Poet’s Garret. [NOTE: This poem was the winner of the 10/12/13 Poetic Bloomings “In-Form Poet with RJ Clarken” Beautiful Bloom Award.]

Musical Progression

I used to be a Beatles fan.
But as I aged, my tastes would move
far away from where they began.
In its every variation,
simplistic or complex pizzazz,
my ears feel a pure elation
whenever they listen to jazz.

There’s no point in me denying
my love for the famous Fab Four.
If I did, I would be lying.
But my musical progression
to the beboppers’ razzmatazz
is now a growing obsession
and today I’m all about jazz.
