The Silence Between Them

.

Notes

don’t make music

until you learn

to insert silence

between them.”

.

~ Ben Folds

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)         classic: each word only one syllable

.

pause

one note

white keys, black keys

chords to make tune

rest

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

ice forms on the branch

winter arrival announced

last leaves fall to ground

.

Poem:

.

quiet the noisy mind
be amazed at what you will find
rare feelings called serenity and peace
appreciation of this world to increase

silence, God’s opportunity to talk
enjoyed while taking an evening walk
wind and waves provide the best music
natures company a nice therapeutic

it takes a friend to break the silence
one willing to give good guidance
two souls that enjoy a mutual trust
a beautiful union sprinkled with angel dust

walk softly but carry a big love
quietly enjoy the blessings from above

But Only Tired

.

“I was not sorrowful,

but only tired

Of everything that

ever I desired.”

.

~ Ernest Dowson

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

fragrant

smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses

aromatic

.

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

.

seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed

.

Poem:

.

can you hear it, the song of the universe
music that stirs every atom of the heart
chords and melodies your being to immerse
every emotion intent on feeling its part

can you see it, heaven aglow with brilliant stars
their dancing choreographed with every note
glittering light reflected by brilliant feldspar’s
words softly sung through a velvet throat

can you feel it, a touch of heavens euphony
sounds that touch the ends of each nerve
every tone becomes a celebrated jubilee
sung by pure voices that angels serve

can you smell it, fragrances carried by varied sounds
from idyllic pastures to the cannons roar
music knows its place, from forefront to backgrounds
every nuance designed to make the spirits soar

can you taste it, songs that stir the imagination
from the ice cream truck to the commercial jingle
a symphony written as a part of the creation
when you are in tune it will make your spine tingle

let the music of the universe invade your  being
allow the children’s laughter to be your first sign
permit your body, mind and soul to be set freeing
enable yourself and the universe to align
