Le Musique!

The musician
Tugs the strings of my heart
As he strums the guitar
And caresses my ears
With the saxophone
While stirring my being
With the drum
And soothing my soul
With his voice

Such joyous sounds
Creating beautiful medleys
That awaken
Countless memories
Tinged with regrets
Endless hopes
For better things to come
Diverse sentiments
About people, places and things

What more can a woman ask?

What can a women ask?

Music speaks all these languages, these expressions that we want to give and yet are scared of. Who is this guitar man and what song is he playing. I would love to listen and feel the joy in your words at the same time. I enjoyed it so much but I was to hear his soothing voice to. Please inbox me....if it was a live performance I will take the moments you gave and I thank you!

I totally vibed with this poem. Last night I took a drum class for the first time- it is amazing what music can do to one's soul.

I hope you are having a beautiful week my friend.

Much Peace and Love,
