Latin Love

Sharing Stories

Joanne Kenzy


Lost in the sounds of time

Through the blue smoke, rhythms and rhyme

Mingling with the stars up above

Come binding sounds, chords we love

Classical ribbons creating hues

Like an angel kissing the strings

Samba rhythms born in Brazil

Epitomes of words with us still

Magical music painted on silence

Inexpressible voices of silk

Two gods blending in harmony

Unwrapping love for the world to see

Through quiet nights of the universe

The Latin love springs forth

Quiet nights, like when we dream

Are sung by Sinatra and Antonio Jobim

SHARING STORIES is a weekly column for and about the 50 plus crowd living in the Puget Sound region. Send your stories and photos to ariele@comcast.net. Tell local or personal stories; discuss concerns around aging and other issues; share solutions, good luck, and reasons to celebrate; poems are fine too. Pieces may be edited or excerpted. We reserve the right to select among pieces. Photos are always a plus and a one-sentence bio is requested (where you live, maybe age or career, retired status, etc.).

SHARING STORIES is featured on www.northwestprimetime.com, the website for Northwest Prime Time, a monthly publication for baby boomers, seniors, retirees, and those contemplating retirement.
