The faster he beat the air, the more chaotic they seemed to play.
Everyone following their own beat, toes tapping in irregular rhythms.
Melody and harmony intertwined in ways not intended by any involved in its creation.
Pushing those in the audience to cringe and squirm in their seats.
Obviously, the following ovation was intense. The musicians were kids after all.
Double her melody, but a third higher they said
Under normal circumstances that would have been a cakewalk
Except she found out the person she was singing with was Mariah Carey
That meant either she needed to find another octave in range or have a car hit her so she could get out of it
Slurping the yummy broth made her taste buds dance
Oregano and tomato played the bass notes
Under the delightful melody of lemon zest high notes
Pasta applying the percussion on her tongue
Deep bass notes punctuated the melody
Announcing it was time to get up
Nascent instincts awaken and bodies begins to move
Creating a kinetic ephemeral work of art
Even though some of the pieces need some tweaking
Bouncing along to the rock-hard bass sculpture
Enjoying the poetry of the melody
And reveling in the colorful painting of the harmony
That’s wrapped in a ballet for your ears
So much artistic goodness for your soul
Sounds escaped the sax that built a castle of blue ice
Over that the horns mourned the loss of innocence
Until the drums came in, then picked up the tempo
Letting everything melt into an ecstasy of melody
Tossing his fedora onto the coatrack, Martin sat at the piano
In no time the keys began to sing what was in his heart
Melodies rose and fell on the emotional tide
Enveloping Martin in memories of another time and place
Listening to those faint echoes of her laugh in the harmonies
Envisioning her smile as she joined him on the violin
Softly he finished his musical poem and smiled at her picture on the piano
She would always be a part of his soul
