Music in My Dream

Music in my Dream

 

Last night, the strangest thing,

there were notes on the loose.

I first saw them running up the wall

under the window sill.

They were little black notes

some trailing flags.

 

None of them were barred

or whole notes and barred

or barred and half notes

or half notes and tied.

None of them were chords.

No treble clef to hang my hat on.

 

The runaways would appear

then disappear,

But I heard them in the next room;

there were high notes and low notes

with blended notes

and all notes

singing sweet sweet music.

 

I tried to capture them

to neatly place them in a book

but they would have none of that,

they simply trilled their song

and moved along.

Delightful Tink.The notes set free to create their music. Perhaps a reflection on the nature of creativity. The magic reminds me of Hesse's short story book 'Strange News from Another Star'.

Sorry working on my cell phone so wrote a response and it vanished. I Assam at a youth con and the kids at dinner were talking about the color of music and synaesthesia... A delightful coincidence for a delightful poem :-) also reminds more of one of my old favorites. Eating poetry not sure of the author...

 

Many thanks Tinker!

Rather like sprinkling stardust in a Disney movie.. changing everything from black and white to colour. "No treble clef to hang my hat on." made me smile. :smile:
