Music

From the opening note
to the last
It touches emotions
in me…
either “the holy or
the broken”
My heart swells
and there are 
tears of joy
 
Hallelujah…
Hallelujah…
Hallelujah…
Hallelujah…
 
Thank you Leonard!

Unchained Melody

Unchained Melody

You played it for me
when we made sweet
love in the afternoon
Intention without saying
 
Unchained Melody
will always make
me think of you
with delicious memories
 
That was long ago…
Yet…
Hearing that song
take me back…
When times were
sweeter…
gentler…
And
Love meant something
to us both

My Special Space

My Special Place

I sit in my favorite chair

Music wafts all around me

A variety of music

That takes me

to all places…

some known…

some unknown…

The longer I sit

the more I travel

And…

Smile

Finding my self in

a favorite place…

a special place…

if only in my dreams

My country place…

with a glass conservatory

where I settle in for the day

to read…

to write…

and to travel in my

mind through words and music

With book or

journal and pen in hand…

A cup of tea by my side

and a cat sleeping peacefully

at my feet

I have arrived…

My Special Place

Candles on the Windowsill

Candles on the Windowsill

Night falls

And…

You are here

A Special time…

For us

You light candles

for the windowsill

Putting the room in

soft flickering light

A Special time…

Watching shadows on the wall

Shadows on our skin

As we share the

Language of love…

Ancient rhythms…

Spoken in shadow…

Exchanged in touch…

Slow stories in deep

Kisses as passion

Builds…

Spills…

Into the scented room

Candle light casting

a golden glow on

your bare skin

Enticing me to

Taste…

Touch…

Savor…

like a fine Champagne

as we burst forth

in the finale of an

Unheard Symphony

One only we can hear…

Feel…

Touch…

Taste…

Our bodies entwined

as the music speaks

to us alone…

through us…

becoming us…

in the flickering

golden shadows

Music

 

I dream in music

When you come to me…

the ancient rhythms…

rhymes…

melodies…

course through you…

And…

in that moment, you

play me…

play my body…

my senses…

like the finest of instruments

well tuned

Instruments created for…

Reserved for…

The masters of song

to only be used when performing

their symphonies of the ages…

finely tuned and elegant…

eloquently strumming…

humming…

plucking…

fingering…

the instrument that is my body…

my soul…

rising and falling…

until the finale…

the crescendo…

leaves us both spent

with the wonder of

Music

That Day

Early Spring

House wide open

Music blaring

Curtains flutter in the breeze

A perfect day

An unexpected call

Her life changed

Immediately…

That day…

Music died

The Sun stopped shining

AND

Her World stopped

Turning

Tears

I am an emotional being

Easily moved by…

beauty…

sunrises…

sunsets…

a love poem…

a tender song…

a compelling novel…

All can bring me to tears

Tears Cried Like Stars

Smooth Jazz

Late night radio

Cool strains of a Sax

What song is that?

More instrumentals

The Piano

Fur Elise

The Piano

The opening strains of…

Fur Elise

Am I dreaming…

No one plays but me…and

I am in bed trying to wake up

Who is playing the piano in the living room!

Wait…the piano is in here…in the room

where I am trying to sleep.

Where am I?

This is not my

bedroom…

house…

Prying my eyes open

Suddenly I realize where I am

and who is playing

Impossible…I cannot be here

How did this happen?

Dorthy is playing … but …

how did I get here?

How do I get home?

Does she even know I am here?

OR

Are either of us really here?

Music Like Poetry

Words are my life…

Music is my soul…

The two are intertwined in my heart

To keep me sane

To keep me…Me

Music is my Muse

Writing is my Life

Without the two

I would be only a

Shell of myself
