Music and hope

Music
What a way to start a day

Music
Creating hope
Creating desire
Creating life
All around

Like a breath of fresh air, even when there is no fresh air around.
Like the rhythm of the swaying leaves, even when there is no wind blowing.
Like the sweet sounds of the morning after it has rained, even though it is a bright and dry day.
Like the morning dew, even though you are walking on concrete.

Music
Giving hope
Giving desire
Giving Life
Now

Music
That plays
On and on
And on

...and a bright morning when it is raining ...a floating dream when you haven't been sleeping ...and warm amber lips when you're having tea.

*listening to explosions in the sky - how strange, innocence album on repeat mode

You and are I are on the same wavelenghts at times, it's so uncanny. I wrote something in my journal today, but need to figure out how to us my husband's laptop while on this trip. It's on a different theme, but I'm sure you'll relate.

Music is wonderful when you still hear it long after it's gone. Life is wonderful when you can still see the beauty long after it has faded.

...like a man from the desert dreaming about snow-capped mountains...like a lonely person sitting in a fast moving car on a dark night; hair whipping across the cheeks and listening to a song of love and hoping of getting some...
...yep music fuels hope.

As someone who says "Music is my Porn" this post put a dreamy smile on my face! you've said it all, everything I feel abt music, but say it so pathetically with that statement of mine!

...what will I be without music in my life? what will I write without music in the air? aboslutely nothing on both counts....

...especially liked, "Like the morning dew, even though you are walking on concrete."

atomicvelvetsigh, gulnaz, Anil - Thanks for adding on your lines to this one. Lovely! :-)

PoeticMermaid - Look forward to seeing it.

Phal - No particular song, just the iPod in the morning before facing another day! ;-)

Geetanjali - I think that "Music is my Porn" is a strong statement by itself! ;-)

this really, um struck a chord with me (I know, bad word choice...hahahha). I have found that music, for me, can completely change everything... heighten a blissful state or ruin it completely... lift me out of misery or make me inconsolable. so yes your words:

Like a breath of fresh air, even when there is no fresh air around.
Like the rhythm of the swaying leaves, even when there is no wind blowing.
Like the sweet sounds of the morning after it has rained, even though it is a bright and dry day.
Like the morning dew, even though you are walking on concrete.

are so very, very apt.
bravo.

I agree...music is my savior. I love this line:

Like the morning dew, even though you are walking on concrete.
