Last of the sunshine days

I’m sitting here hoping that I will be wrong
that this day in September will be
The last of the sunshine, the last of the warmth
in this place that I love by the sea

It’s October next week, the Autumn is here
but the warmth I am feeling today
is more like the summer I love and adore
and I’d rather have that I would say

The beach is a diamond, the sun on the sea
shining like never before
And me in my element sitting down here
so close to the Sussex sea shore

So I’m hoping the words of the old Mountain song
“Last of the sunshine days”
will be something I say several more times this year
in more of this late summer haze

The Sea Organ

7 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

In Zadar on the water’s edge
outside the city wall
the sea organ plays music
to delight us and enthral

Powered by the ocean waves
as tidal waters flow
soft, deep sounds are heard by all
from movements down below

It is quite beautiful to hear
Peace echoed in this place
Harmonious the waters sing
of ocean’s subtle grace

Zadar’s ‘Sea Organ’ was designed by the architect Nikola Basic as part of a project to redesign the new city coastline. The waves from the Dalmation coast interact with the organ to create random harmonic sounds forced up through holes along the sea wall. It was opened to the public in April 2015.

Music III

Music as comforter
enters my soul
Enlightens my mind
making me whole

Synergy

Found I shared a synergy
earlier today
with a kindred spirit
many miles away
A passion shared in music
awakened by a song
heard across the airwaves
to which we sang along

Music knows no boundaries
ethnicity here is moot
as all that really matters
is the substance at the root
And as the music faded
and we wiped away a tear
That synergy we both had shared
was absolutely clear

Life Music

Quite often then
my eyes will dance
‘tho my feet
are slower there
For there is music
all around
in life most
everywhere

New Music

The quietness of the woodland brook
is always worth a second look

For with its trickle so it sings
and with it a new music brings

Drum

The wooden floors vibrated
from the sound of many drums
Rhythm everywhere around
enjoyed by everyone
And I danced to special timbre
pulsated by the beat
from heart and soul and head and hands
right down to my feet
