The sound of MUSIC

The words of this poem came naturally to me when I was hearing this song " Do nishaniyan" from the movie Jhootha hi Sahi.Songs have immense power. They stir your emotions in ways one can never think of. So here it goes.....:)

This music, these words talk to me,

Not just the ‘surface’ that you see,

But, a lot more, that lies in deep,

The feelings it evokes in me,

Are hard to explain, as I focus on the ‘feel’,

The music that dances like a fountain,

The colors that paint the canvas,

The song that makes me at ease,

A lullaby, so musical, worth so much,

The voice of the singer, I would like to kiss,

The love, the pain, I hear as he sings,

The flute, the violin, the piano, and me,

I close my eyes, and enter a well-lit garden,

Where I imagine my beloved and the music as a gift,

No words spoken, nor do I hear,

All I feel is the musical love in the air!

And had I been deaf, I wonder,

What would make me dance, make me feel

The way I do as I now hear!

So often it’s the singer we appreciate,

Forgetting those who made the song,

Each instrument, each musician, I see,

Puts his soul in the work I hear as I feel,

And now that these instruments are a part of “me”,

I’ll explore myself in this serenity!!
