NaPoWriMo Day 15:

The challenge today is to write a poem inspired by your favorite kind of music. Try to recreate the sounds and timing of a pop ballad, a jazz improvisation, or a Bach fugue. That could mean incorporating refrains, neologisms and flights of whimsy, or repeating/inverting lines or ideas – whatever your chosen musical form would seem to require! 

I have used my all time favourite composition of Bryan Adams- ‘Everything I do’


 

A melody of love

 

Music,” I whispered in your ears,

Let’s cajole ourselves in music,”

For it’s not every day that romance springs the air

 

 

Look into my eyes, you’ll see; what you mean to me

The words of Bryan Adams I hear dancing on your lips

As you embrace me in your arms with our eyes sealed

 

 

Strings of guitar glisten the starless night

Pitter-patter of sensuous rain orchestrates the beats

As symphony of our hearts creates amorous melodies

 

 

Notes of piano stir soulful euphony

Endearingly you explore my curves,

To the cadence, we waltz and swirl

 

 

Vibrations, soft humming-

I feel tingling on the softness of my skin

As the last chord hits

 

 

Honey, let me go; but I love you darling, you very well know

Mumbling under your breath, you move away from me

No moment to convalesce from my ecstasy

 

 

“You know it’s true;

Everything I do, I do it for you”

Adams chimes in the background

 

 

I smile,

Whistling the aria

I know darling; I love you too!
