A precious resonance echoed within me,
A tolling that brought the spirits to me,
A golden sound that clung to my spine,
A spiritual sanctification from the Gods,
A lingering that lingered not long enough,
A dream of my heart and fruit of sorrow,
A sweet nectar from the fields of pleasure,
A warming to the icy veins that run inside,
A replacement of life to the mortal spirit,
A clarification of the meaning of life,
A lust for life to go beyond my years,
A brook that found its way to the sea,
A mother lode unveiled from its secrecy,
A rainbow that found its way to my visions,
A sound that crawled up my spine,
A mystic journey that found my heart,
A soft landing that sang to me in verse,
A lust for this artistic pleasure to linger on,
A vow to keep my allegiance to it,
A music that transported me to heaven,
A passion that guided me along the way,
A lullaby that soothed my anxious thoughts,
A resonance that spoke to me in tomes,
A primal language from the halls of sound,
A new awakening from the freshest melodies,
And a desire to keep them
Flowing through my veins.
Precious melodies, precious resonance,
Do no forsake me.
Live in my heart for as long as you can.

I love music that has floating chords in it, not the usual 1 - 5- 1 progressions, but chords at random that blend into each other, not abruptly, but smoothly, with plenty of modulations, pushing the melody in different directions.

What a mystery sound is to me. Certain music moves me very little, but some fills my up completely. I can't get enough of it. I'm a pianist myself. I must say I am a real snob, but can't do anything about it. It just happens to me.

“...lust for life...beyond our years...”. Beautiful. Music and let live!
A note weaving into various melodies and come out a rainbow chord blending into different waves and rhythms of music - like maybe a trio, a full choral symphony or a rogue impromptu band in an airport, or a solo Spanish guitar virtuoso leading a flamenco or Bolero dancer.
Music affects our mood, an essential element in our well being.
We hear and see it every where. We go up and down with it. We sleep, wake, mull, walk, run, eat, read, love and dance with it. We live with it. It’s our twin life if I may say. Hmm...
Like. Thank you Robert.
