My commitment to a shadow Still active, in tune Sensing all those feelings Like landing on the moon Each contact an explosion Washing thru my dreams.
Thus I'll always remember Love's a universal theme Made note of thru music Invading my brain Filling in the vacuum When I lost you in the rain.
Our love caught in the cosmic shear Remains active energy year after year Vibrating thru all the tunes I hear Listening to the music of jazz seers.
The expression of love as a work of art Flows thru the ears to fill the heart Feeling rich, open to an accurate dart Connecting us, after decades apart.
Kept active thru mellow tunes Filling the room with your image: My fantasy taking form thru the horn The blending of souls a privilege.
And the day you admit it's correct The joy that we share will emit Thru space and time for eternity The beauty when as two we submit To the blending as one The energy of the sun.
A SURFACE GLANCE
A hundred poems, pouring outlets Scratching at the memories Calling thru those tunes. Our love I still cherish. Sparkling insight, my idol Playing instruments as the doorway To the galaxies: love blooms Each time I remember Watching you play tunes.
Passion so precise, yet flowing Mellow joy enriching Every contact we make, priceless Moments when allowed to show A surface glance at love's energy Sneaking back with every tune.
I love jazz because it mixes intellect and emotion in a very spontaneous way.
I was first exposed to jazz by liberating a Coltrane and a Pharoah Sanders record from a friend in NYC and listening to them over and over until I got it.
My advice to new listeners is you have to take the time to listen to some jazz tunes a number of times until it starts to make sense.
