LET MUSIC BE

Touch the music gently.

Let the notes descend like mist
Crowning a blossom with dewdrops wary
of bending a petal with its weight

Let music rest like a feather
On a bed of tender bluets
Each a complement to the other’s spirit

Let the melody whisper its own sweet words
Touching the heart like a leaf
landing on the water
Or a butterfly giving a flower its kiss

And the heart will yield to that music
That makes her life a dream
and brings the dream to being.

Written after listening to Victor Borges’ Claire de Lune.

Linking with DVERSE Poets’ Open Link Night.

  1. My goodness this is good! ❀️ Especially love; “Let the notes descend like mist/Crowning a blossom with dewdrops wary of bending a petal with its weight.” πŸ˜€

  2. Music is so powerful but I love the way you bring in different senses and personification to this piece….”descend like mist” , “rest like a feather”….beautiful!
