A Music Is Made Poem by Bharati Nayak

A Music Is Made

Rating: 4.8


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.

Beautiful and enchanting, it so nice to read over and over again, Love conveyed in nature and music..truly it is only with the heart that one can see and write love in its purity. To quote this music is played, when in silence, it is heard, from thousand miles apart absolutely sweet.

Only a poet of exceptional caliber can feel and make others feel the beauty and bounties of nature all around us which are otherwise beyond the grasp of our senses. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful poem which is now part of the list of my favourite poems. I would like to quote a few lines though the entire poem is a masterpiece. To the soft sunshine / That illuminates My inner and outer world / How can I give a name
