Music like…

Standard
Music like…

I wrote the this 2 years back in November. Not sure why I didn’t post it but I read it out and posted. So for those of you who like to read, what do you love like?

I love music like the way the heart loves air
like a patch of blue on red that makes one stare…
like the known voice of a lover who isn’t there
yet every reminder says to you, “I care!”

I love music like the aroma of good food
whose thoughts makes you salivate like good should
conjuring images whose anticipation feels really good
giving you satisfaction like you knew it would!

I love music like an unplanned touch of a lover
that reveals your feelings held under cover…
making you nod to its rhythm as you grow fonder,
listening to its’ blend as in amazement wonder.

I love music like a child who loves to giggle
and scream with laughter at every tickle…
for its ability to make me respond and toes wiggle…
and the atmosphere that allows us dance and mingle!

I love music …

In and Out!

Standard
In and Out!

Listening to the rhythms and beats
And I realized that there are times I don’t hear!
Those times I’m merely there, but hardly about life care!

Same way the heart trumps and beats,
Yet the meaning to life, I’ve lost and can’t understand!
Why so much sound, colors, movements, yet my world still it stands!

It is not light that beckons thus,
But an unseen force which slowly sucks out desire.
Threatening to engulf beauty with its’ dark and quench fires!

It is almost silent, but it flickers.
A strand to hold, a jot of light, a grain of hope.
A seeker’s find, a treasure mine, a WORD, a hug and I cope!

#WQWWC – Adventure

Standard

Every time I write, I give you a piece of me. I think everyone would appreciate a gift. I may not always be there for you, but sharing me with you through my words is creating me beside you, so you are never alone! https://silverthreading.com/2016/06/08/writers-quote-wednesday-writing-challenge-adventure/

All of Space is easy to glide through with you

Bending under leaves and branches,

Coming out the other end a different hue

Avoiding heaps and trenches

With a thought I chose to delight your sight,

Tease your senses beyond the guesses

Or offer you mid-night frights and no lights

Please get this, I mean you no stresses!

Come run with me my dear

Through highs and lows, steep and plain

We will succeed, don’t fear

Hold tight, flow, as we drip rain!

#WQWWC – Inspiration

Standard

Colleen wants to know what inspires me. Too bad that cannot be covered in a page or two as some are intangible and can’t be described, painted or explained. I’ve tried to capture some of my inspirational moments, smiling as I remember each. This is for you Colleen, one of my inspiration source. https://silverthreading.com/2016/06/01/wqwwc-writers-quote-wednesday-writing-challenge-inspiration/

With the fluttering of wings
The words in my heart sings
Dancing to tunes, not phone rings
That take shapes on paper and blinks
Beyond heavy chains and metal blings
With the smile of a child
My creative thoughts run wild
Baring fantasies that won’t hide
As through the winds you glide
From the Word in the Word
To the strength of two-edged swords
Juices drip and flood the chords
Rhymes grip the unwritten buds
Life, death, loss, gain
Strife, birth, cost, rain
Wife, breath, frost, grain
Knife, health, bust, plain
I easily exhale and relate
That which causes me no debate
Inspirations do not deserve to wait
Let’s rock, roll and continue to create.
