“El Conservatorio” We Write Poems-Prompt #77: Instant Poetry

Her voice captivates me — it’s
light, bringing love from blue skies
in bel canto like a carillon,

searching for a face to match
the music, floating through my world

Behind stone façades her piano resonates,
each strong chord a heavenly aria;
segued, I move along the ficus-lined street

Conservatorio de Música del Estado de Puebla. Where this magical event took place.
