An Ancient Song

By
Published:
Sign in to view read count
Wandering with the currents
Eminating thru certain sounds ---
Piano exploring alternatives
To the hollowness around.
Sax flowing thru the systems,
Emotions resound
Remembering the actual ---
To those passions forever bound
As bass and drum activate
Recall of lost sounds
Still playing in the brain cells
Tho the actual long gone.

Save for those brief moments
Something in return
That allows all these dreams
Real fuel to burn:
Not enough for any journey ---
Fire crackers flashing
As the sun goes down.

But better than nothing
Hearing music's echoes resound
Conjures up your image:
Love every moment always found
If admitted both were searching
To listen to that ancient song.
