Light or Dark

Fresh starts

Do It Now

From darkness to light……

Music intoxication

 

The Poetry Jar

Composure

 

I want to be Brahms and Liszt,

Feel the mirth of Mozart,

The melancholia of Mahler,

The solemnity of Schumann.

Be brooding like Beethoven,

Besotted like Belioz,

Debauched as Debussy,

As wanton as Walton,

Until I’m mad as Mussorgsky

With Wagnerian valour

Before rolling off my head.

 

A/N: The idea about this poem is to reflect various stages of intoxication via the general mannerisms of famous composers whose music intoxicates us in different ways. The first line is refers to a general euphemism of being drunk while the last line refers to Tchiakovsky, who often used to fear that his head was going to fall off.

love

I am
the breeze
that bends
fields of grass

I am
water
gliding
around
river rock

I gently
whisper
loving words
to harsh attitudes
overcoming
obstacles
with gentle
persuasion
