Poetry 'n Prose

Between music and poetry

I am a space within an outline. You are too.
Some people fill the space with the same thing
day after day: that’s character. I pick up
this, then some other thing. I put them down.

Tides flood through me and withdraw again
Provocative, angry tenderness, honest
This verse – my ears surrendering
becoming evolved – to the unborn.

Other times, I enjoy the empty space
between my ears, let musics play
in the silence there, coloured lines weave shapes
on the plain background, enjoy my role
as medium, like canvas, like a flute.

Between musics and poetry is best
Just to relax from the execution of the tune
and be a virtuous nothing,
a good empty space.

I like this :)
and I like that space between music and poetry,
where I drift in a world void of drama and chaos ….
Hope you are doing well in your part of the world Lee…
Take Care…You Matter…

Thanks Mary, maybe the chaos and the cosmos are entwined in the void. Music tries to make sense of all this, by trying to adhere to some form of coherent order. But being inherent and disorganised person this just drives me crazy. I’ve come to respect chaos as an essential ingredient for music. What do you think?

I think sound is the chaos and gifted
people (such as yourself :) )bring order to the chaotic sound waves as they create music
so I agree in my backward way of thinking with you :)
my chaos is my organizing skills in life :)
