Bharati Nayak

A Music Is Made

What and how
Can I define
And give a meaning
When I look
To the soft sunshine
That illuminates
My inner and outer world
How can I give a name
when music is made
When sweet breeze
Caresses the green branch
Or when
Flowers dance
In the rhythm
And the birds chirp

In which note
This music is played
When in silence
It is heard
From thousand miles apart.
In which name
I shall call the cloud
That wanders into the desert
Drizzles for a traveller wearied.

What name shall I call the drizzle
That frees the music
Held captive in the dungeon
And give a chance to play again
In the freedom
Where sunshine,
moon beam
Birds and butterflies
Even the tiniest life dance.

    Music- The sacred form
    Wednesday,8th July 2020


    music is a sacred form of prayer
    where it appeals more to the listeners
    creates spellbound magic in ears
    and forgets about artificial barrier

    Hasmukh Mehta

    When they tend your heart to tame,
    some melodies have no name,
    when played, sound so sweet,
    some notes have no science behind it....
    lovely, dear poet

    Soooo beautiful poem! Yes, nature has a sound and music that can be heard and listened in a loud silence all around, loud silence that nature herself produces. Nature is music itself. Lovely poem dear poetess. Melodious music blended with a beautiful imagery. Lovely indeed.

    What a wonderful verse, you hear music in the sights of the world, rare is the person who simply enjoys those whose beauty are fleeting.
