Poem Commentary

Agua sí, se cae en el monte.

Blues

The winded
brassy 
notes are fluid,
moody longing they display,
in the company
of keyed ivory,
as the sentient voice eschews
a song of sentimental value,
low lashes cast in shadows,
by the smokey pall obscured,
in its settled grey dark blue.

In deep shade a piano whispers,
a manner for which it is known,
and bidden by the applause,
it hails a sweet indulgence
this night I call my own
that recalls a pillows velvet contours
have sewn a divergent point of view,
this half moon bay remembrance
the one you take me to,
because,
in dreams I dream of you.

May I ask what song it was? I am a blues/jazz musician, and I felt this one, deeply. I could feel the piano keys, see the stage and feel the pounding beat in my soul. Great work, I have no complaints, only compliments.

Thank you Blanket!! I was listening to thr radio so I don't know the name of the song unfortunately. What instrument do you play?

There is an amazing way to display music notes in a poem, where jazz won't even cover the fluorescent magic of the blues.

En los sueños que me das, adonde vivo, de ayi te escribo.

I never thought to write a poem this way about blues, such a exciting style to make you want to hear the notes and songs of blues well wrtitten.

Yes, I think that the blues are on a level all their own. It would have been nice to have been able to add the song and listen to it aong with the poem. I am very glad that you liked it Optimistic, thank you!

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
