Two Things Music/Note



It is quite difficult representing music in visual form so I have plumped for one of the CDs we have suspended in our garden, which catch the light. If you wanted to be a bit fanciful are like a flat CD coming to life on the turntable giving off a kaleidoscope of colours, both visually and aurally. I often think they look a bit like planets suspended like this.

Harmony of the Spheres

Music is emotion
It strikes the deepest chord
The passions of Puccini
The march that provokes the sword
The tender love in lullaby
What has this to do with rote
Mysteriously at its essence
Mathematical patterns of the note

I love the sparkle of the CDs in your photo and I especially like your poem! It's fabulous!

Well, thank you, DC! I don't think it's a very good poem, but it's got music and note in which is the main thing. My poems always seem a bit mathematical....

At least you gave it a try, more than I did!
