Good morning world!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a lover of music. I am a wandering melody from my head to my toes. I am a six foot four inch rambling tuning fork with a note that never ends. I absolutely love music, even more than I love chocolate, if you can believe that.
Music plays such a role in our lives, marking places and time with its own unique bookmarks that instantly take you back and hug you, as if it were for the first time.
I have written often of how melody and harmony fills the empty spaces of my days, until they overflow with life. I write about it, I listen to it, I live it and I encourage others to immerse themselves into music as I do, for it will never let you down.
I wrote the following poem a few months ago, and as it jumped out onto the screen, I felt as if I were listening to another song, another soothing melody, another poetic journey of imagination, and as I read it back for the first time, I could hear the music playing in my head.
I want to thank you for stopping by once again, or maybe for the first time. I didn’t really create this blog to attract readers, but it seems as though I’ve attracted a few, and I am grateful for the experience.
Have a melodic day and never lose the rhythm of the moment.
The notes reach down and grab my soul
The chords run straight and true
The melodies, the harmonies
The familiar and the new
Like walking through the neighborhood
Or rocking in a chair
A gentle cooling summer’s breeze
That glides without a care
So many rhymes inside me
This music that I hear
So many ways I reminisce
The lyrics sound so clear
Passions pound from deep inside
The album spins around
I spin along inside the song
Rising to the sound
Non stop childhood lullabies
One hit wondrous tune
Wide eyed gaze, a catchy phrase
Spinning ’round the moon
