The Song


I set the song free,
From the chains,
To which it was bound,
Once, holding fast,
To the walls of,
This prison.

I watched the song,
Float away on a cloud,
As the sun shone through,
With its lovely rays
Bringing warmth,
In the midst of cold.

I felt the song,
Rushing through
My every vein,
Flowing through,
Undiscovered lands,
And into my heart.

I sang the song,
Of my heart,
With written thoughts,
Making eye contact,
Saying nothing,
But feeling all.

I gently blew the song,
Into your palms,
Watching, waiting,
For the slightest hint,
Of understanding,
And acknowledgement.

A song came back,
On purple wings,
A song sent here by you.
I decided to wait,
Before opening it,
But, I still haven’t heard the tune.

  3. My gosh!! Lovely imagery, dp… I mean this was just absolutely beautiful!! So enjoyed the flow of this song… it just drifted and drifted like a petal…
    but then came the twist towards the end! And that too was so very well done!! Simply WOW!
    I hope the tune returns to the song, and I hope you hear it soon enough…
    Love and Hugs..
    P.S: You are soooo good at selective highlighting/coloring!! (sigh)….

  4. The imagery here is fantastic; using ‘the song’ as a symbol for so much of life left quite an imprint on your rally entry. Reads well, you are quite the gifted poet. Always good to stop by your site,


  5. Good use of color, and the relation to song and music…very apt. It is a potent symbol, and both contributed to a lovely flow all around. Would that we all hear such a song returned to use one day…

    Wow… this poem really made me wander at the tune that was sung.
