spirit of music, beckons
sounds evoke images, ears absorb
they swirl around your core
then settle, within the depth of you
drops of silken water touch leaves
waterfalls cascade down glassy rocks
rainbows stretch across hills
clouds float along the breeze
waves tumble to the shore
snow slowly melts on the bough
sunset on a slow summers night
branches bow against the breeze
the notes are more than these
go with them, they guide you to
places you have never been
some make you soar
fly on wings ‘cross crystal oceans
or darkness and shadows appear
what you experience, what you hear
as notes heighten senses
music changes you, brings tears
of sadness, or of joy
instruments or words
they can alter the thoughts
you now possess
before you began to play

Thank you Michael, the last few days ..a bit low, needed to lighten my mood.
Gave me a sense of floating down a mountain. Lovely!
I hope you had a happy landing then 😉 and thank you sweet.
😉 right to the ocean for a swim. And you’re welcome.
you are learning for sure…
music has such a power to affect us
our mood, to pull out of us the good or bad….
and each will respond differently to the same
music/song…cool vid btw….forgot to tell you that
thank you and thanks to you and other wonderful people out there, I will get there.. yes I can be in the dumps put inspiring or happy music on and I am lifted..alternatively I can put on sad music and the tears will flow. Thanks – the vid is pretty awesome 😉
The imagery is clean and the sounds haunting.

This is just what I needed (I’ve spent the last half hour trying to start the &*^$@ lawnmower).
Ahhh – time to relax with some Jen time now….
oh dear R & R needed – glad I could help (hate lawnmowers – more temperamental than us women) 😉 xx
you are so right – music can evoke all kinds of feelings )
Yes I’m probably stating the obvious, lol just has me in awe every time I listen and see what comes of it. 🙂 x

You are just too sweet thank you 🙂
I liked this piece all the way around from the poem to the music, it enlightened my day.
