Messages thru the wires Our love conspires To melt in the fires: All time spent apart Dissolving in the art, Expression from the heart Celebrating union After decades apart.
A dream woven in the music Illustrates the beauty in surrender As rish notes accentuate The flowing energy of love.
Complex hieroglyphics, those melodies I watched you play Still trace your image As the music sways.
The Range of Submission
Sitting in the shadows your image Playing mellow horn, sweet sounds That echo thru the blood stream Passions of long ago, made active With every tune as symbol of The range of submission to Oblivion thru flowing song Remembering how we swayed together Electrified in your arms.
Now searching thru the language Love to bring you to my home. A dream I can't abandon For it lives in every tune; The sense of flowing unity Reflected in those songs.
As Joy Slides
Caught in the waves of infinite Space Single moments like pearls flashing Give a meaning to stars' brightness: An end to our struggle for significance Acknowledging the beauty in NOW As a gift given every day Mixed with memories priceless Thru the transfer of melodies To our love as an act of grace.
Thus joy slides thru the music And I'll never forget your face As I close my eyes and daydream Tho denied the actual taste.
Recall Through Music
The first month in the long sweep Which winter casts across our shore: Days brief, strong cold winds Ripping at stark branches My only company, shared with memory For the passion has blown away.
Everything disappearing Save the recall thru music Roaming thru the brain cells Where memories of you play Exquisitely rich harmonies.
Thus the love here to stay Caught listening to beauty Makes it a perfect day To thank you for the gift Your love sent my way To fill me with an awesome joy Remembering how you played.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
