She is a 60’s jazz song

She is a 60’s jazz song
An old soul
The type of girl that prefers the lives of book characters in adventurous novels,
She considers wine as a meal
And drinks it with chocolate
She is the type of girl that teaches yoga class down at the city’s heart
And has a gay best friend called “Franco”
She only considers French kisses as kissing
And can not stand the cruelty of animals
She is the type of girl that will speck her truth
And most call her a smart mouth.

She is the type of girl that wears her scarves on her head
Paints when she can’t sleep
And listens to New Orleans jazz.
She takes dance classes
And the tap of her feet sound like rain drops on a window during a warm summer night

She is simple and complex at the same time
Loves Johnny Cash but still rocks out to Nirvana
She is the girl ‘The Temptations’ sang about
She is sunshine on a cloudy day
She has is the type of girl that is easy to love,
Like is like a Etta James song
“Sunday kind of love”
She is defiantly the kind of girl that you would love past Saturday night.

She is a 60’s jazz song
An old soul
With complicated algorithms
Made up of star dust and earth gems
Gems found in the soils of Sierra Leone
Gems that made men travel lands and seas to dig up
She is a 60’s jazz song
With and old soul
And perfect eyes to match.
She is “easy like Sunday morning”

She will steal your heart without you even noticing
And will keep it right next to her 60’s albums.
She will play at your heart strings every time she smiles at you.
She is the kind of girl you will tell your grand kids about,
Describing her like a unicorn.
You will tell them about the girl who sounds like an old 60’s jazz song.
A girl with the heart of gold and a smile of an angel.

  1. Specks her truth. I learned a new word there…
    “She is defiantly the kind of girl that you would love past Saturday night.”
    catchy piece of work, I read every word.
