Creative Writing: Music

This post by Adeeyoyo inspired me to do a repost of a Creative Writing Piece I did last year.

Nature’s music…

Perfect harmony

A symphony of raindrops
Can be heard on the roof

At first the pitter-patter
Is very soft, pianissimo

But as the drops turn to hail
The repetitive rata-tat-tat

Becomes deafeningly loud,
A crescendo

As the conducting Moon
Changes phases

So too does its sonata
With the waves

The adagio lapping of the shores
Hastens; accelerando, accelerando

To become a crashing march on the sand.
In 28 days, the refrain will begin again…

    I think this is nice especially the Moon conducting.

    Lovely…it was crashing last night…sounded as if it was in my front garden.

      I remember the crashing waves when we lived at the beach Granny – I loved it…just like a good ol’ crack of thunder.

    I like your combination of music and poetry…..creativity at it’s best!

    You may be inspired by my project, which was combining a Nobel Prize winning poet (Wislawa Szymborksa) with music. The result is the release from my band, Closer Ocean. Szymborska won the Nobel prize in 1996. Her poetry is transcendent, inspirational, simple and yet surprisingly complex. The music is cinematic, intellectual, indie rock.

    Thanks for listening!!!
