Pavane dreamscape

Recommended Posts


Music pre-exists somewhere, angels
declare wings be camouflaged as waterfalls
as they incarnate as poets and composers, outside
Faure's window a web sways simply in the wind,
the spiders intricacy pre-empts the inspiration for
the Pavane, disparate notes in the composers mind are
like chaotic fires in the sun, incantations exit  from
a source undefined, humans are notes personified
music ushers them closer to the divine. 

The moon dances through fire with dancers departing
the earth, Music the invisible bee makes visible flowers
of the mind,. Can we amplify the melody of humanity
to attract the ear of a deity to the earth like a shell, will
he hear his own inner rhythms within the tides of history?.
Mermaid with a pearl eye hums the Pavane to earn the
cry of the languid moon who places the pearl inside the
eye at the center of a web  as he masters the ebb of the
musical matrix. The mermaid's pearl eye in the firmament
follows the moon, music accords with listeners transfiguration.

Hi Berry,  What a beautiful concept, "music pre-exists".   I suppose it does, somewhere, but I had never thought about it before. 

"wings camouflaged as waterfalls"    I love the creative imagery.   "music ushers the closer to the divine"    Lovely.   

I liked this poem a lot,  ~~Tink
