G Chord to C Chord

The C chord is a magical chord

powerful from the get.

I struggle with its shape

but when my fingers nail it

it defines the moment.

It’s present.

The G chord is just right

like the swish of a basketball through a net.

When it’s strummed

reverberations flutter through my heart.

It echoes through time.

The guitar, like water from a spring.

The guitar, where have you been all my life?
