English Poetry, Oct-Nov 2011 Contest

She is pretty angelic
not by her physical
features, charm or appeal
but, she is in possession
of good senses and fine mettle,
capable of sensing music
in almost everything with rhythm.
She listens to the Carnatic
and Hindustani vocals
in the cooing of a cuckoo
in the humming of a honey bee
and jazz music in the heavy rain
with thunder claps.
Feels the music
of wind instruments
in the flow of a stream
and in the whistling of gentle breeze.
Lends an ear to the lullaby, flows
in the muttering of a baby.
Hears melodious music
in the words of the sick and old.
Gifted she is with a fine heart
that transmits the forms of music
to her nerves, ears and thoughts.

    Apurva, Vishvji & Kusum
    Thank you very much for
    your delightful comments.
    Is there anything wrong
    in referring to’ she’ as music
    itself or likely minded noble
    hearted sensitive ones as ‘she’?
    Readers can choose as they like.

    A very grand approach to everyday sounds and their latent music

    Medhini,
    it took me several reads to appreciate this style of writing. Worth the reads.
    “jazz music in the heavy rain
    with thunder claps.
    Feels the music
    of wind instruments
    in the flow of a stream
    and in the whistling of gentle breeze.” – loved the imagery of these lines in particular.
    Ended with a fine thought,
    Fergus
