Music of Madness – Poem of the Month – December 2020

Music of Madness

Hypnotic sounds
calling in silver
from sitar strings
Following though 
forests of jade jewels 
Arms stretched wide
clutching as rainbows
slip through hands 
Crimson-pink quavers
trail from fingertips
Words of grey
float on clouds 
scratched into 
purple sky
The rusty refuge
sunken deep
into monotone
as a finale of
spinning cymbals
of gold crash land on
symphony’s saffron strands

Grace is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us with part two of
Today we will incorporate music in our poem
from the perspectiveof a synesthete.
Create your own Symphony.
Infuse your musical experience when listening
to a band, artist or musical genre, with colors,
sounds & textures.
Write a song filled with colors.

I was inspired by "Tomorrow Never Knows"
by the Beatles from their Revolver album.
It is 'trippy' and easy to conjure up
colors and movement.

The sounds of skylarks and curlews
break the stillness of the morning
The sensory architect already at work
A fading moon compromises
giving way to the sun dawning
Mist suspended over water
waiting for warmth to dissipate
The rocks are bathed clean
Gulls squawking in salty air
A traveling east wind invigorates
On a white capped speckled sea
Fisher boats already far from view
Night time now held to ransom
for the day is center stage
adorned in its morning hue
