# # # Julianne: The Grateful

Rating: 4.1

She has doe’s eyes
A shy gaze
She looks like the Madonna
A sad face
But wait until she breaks into a smile
Suddenly she is sunshine!
And when she laughs
A picture of bliss
You have to see her, hear her
I insist!

When she sings
She sounds so heavenly
(If I were a man
I’d ask her to marry me!)

She turns poetry into song, blessed is her art
The tone of her guitar bright like diamond stars
And when she sings, her voice - mellifluous
Her soul-searching songs, naked like the truth

She is someone I hope one day to become
To be as grateful as the one He called
“Julianne “

Inspired by Julianne (Tarroja) a singer-songwriter from the Philippines, whose amazing debut album titled “Grateful” ought to be heard world-wide… Her song “Grateful” inspired me to write my poem of the same title.

An excellent poem giving a very serene atomosphere. The verses are evoking with pathos. Imagery matches well and add a good lift. Thanks.
