In a heartbeat

Thought I’d try an audio file with one to see how it works. I’ve enjoyed many audios in other poetry blogs.


 In a heartbeat of a single moment

measured in time

In the strange attraction

of the unpredictability of a lifetime passing,


imagining you are where you want to be

waking in the morning thankful

for the chance to have it this way.

The love, the joy,

the wonder of each day

opening in a dance of warmth and loving.


Or even better,


being who you want to be

igniting a passion for life that scintillates in light,

dancing in the dream of limitless wonder

sharing that which only you can be

your unique and special gift

for doing what you absolutely love to do


paused momentarily on the Eden of day and night,

all your memories gently washing over you,

receding in waves of recollection

casting ashore the sands of dreams

in and out of your imagination,

silhouettes and salutations balancing the outline

and inner word of your particular story


better still,


imagine you are with whom you want to be

this very moment wrapped in arms and legs,

anchored to the soft and beautiful

wedded to the possibility of all

that is wonderful in a relationship


where seashells lace the tides separating day and night,


where the future, waiting on your light,


enters your present one moment at a time.

    • hola Josh, if you know of any software I can download to record on laptop could you send it my way. check out Vance on my Facebook, had to scrounge up wood for the fireplace – mi esposa was chilly. (17 c)


  1. Love it! How did you record this, John? I would like to try one too. I prefer to hear poetry over reading it any day. Your voice is a perfect fit for your poetry. (surprise – lol)


    • Actually this is off a CD I put together somewhere in the 90’s at a recording studio. Today I believe you can do it at home on your computer with the right software and mic. I do write for the spoken word and think I’ll revisit the process so will keep you in mind as I experiment.

  2. No sorry. Start with a Google search and then compare with what’s being said on various forums. That should give you a good idea of whats out there. It’s the microphone that will give you the audio quality your voice deserves so consider investing in a good mic.
