A Blind Gypsy And His Piccolo - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

He pitches a higher octave the inner song of desperation
While his fiancee on picnicking with her violin.
She fiddles to another heart a different tune
And the blind sees her secret whereabouts.

* I love you and hope you love me
I kept my promise, don't keep your distance.
-Evita, Don't cry for me Argentina-

    Fiddle and flute will be in synchrony and synergy hope so…melancholy will be élan …euphony nears the distance… thanks for sharing…

    Two souls out of tune with each other. This is very sad. Life can be very unfair. Fine penning, Nimal.
