Kaleidoscope of Sounds

BY

Sign in to view read count
The first haze of fall
Creeps thru night's shadows:
In music the essence of
Time conquers all
Made lyrical, harmonious
Bringing all into Now.


A flowing kaleidoscope
Enriches the soul
Remembering our passions
Thru thousands of tunes
Weaving joy and excitement ---
Thus wanting you still,
The heat of your body
The altar of my soul
Flowing thru heart-wrenching sounds.

OUR LOVE CAN'T BE ERASED

What I wait for, still, with wonder
Just a fantasy I crave
Remembering the glory of our plunder
Memories carried to the grave
Become actual energy thru the music.
That gift, our love, thus saved
In passionate notes that tingle
With reflections of our embrace
Totally denied thru paranoia
As you nurture home's fate.


Tho the reasoing purely logical
Dreams can't be displaced
But flow alive thru lyrical notes:
Our love can't be erased
That gift, our love, thus saved
In passionate notes that tingle
With reflections of our embrace
Totally denied thru paranoia
As you nurture home's fate.

Tho the reasoning purely logical
Dreams can't be displaced
But flow alive thru lyrical notes:
Our love can't be erased
It has transferred into exquisite beauty
In a hundred thousand tapes.

FLOWING ENERGY

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 rich notes accentuate
The flowing energy of love.

Complex hieroglyphics, those melodies
I watched you play ---
Still trace your image
As the music sways.
