Keys of Black & White


















baby, I read your notes
as you played on black & white keys
catching a high in your melody
on a rose covered float

your words music to my ears
speaking in a tongue,  I understand
lost in a gentle shower of tears
petals fall in a rose covered land

harmony between the sheets

fingers  striking various chords
pounding rhythm  of my heart beat
angels dance in the house of lords
messages of love bittersweet

baby, I read your notes
as you played on black & white keys
catching a high in your melody
on a rose covered float

harmony between the sheets

  6. It is good when the music speaks to the intended and they get it, especially if playing is a passion. And when that music is in rhythm with your own heart as well. Ha nice double play on meaning there in that last line as well.

  7. I admire the refraining verses and lines, harmony between the sheets ~

    A sweet love note & romantic to the musical ear ~ Thanks for linking up with D'verse Truedessa ~

  8. Harmony is what we strive for in a relationship, isn't it? This is surely reflected in your harmonious words.

  9. Ah, those black and white keys play colorful tunes! Harmonic or dissonant, depending on the day. Hopefully always harmonious between the sheets!

  10. I love what you did with the double meanings in "notes" and "sheets." Sheet music, bed sheets, sheets of paper. Musical notes, written notes. Also, if you split "notes" in half, you get "no tease." So there's no tease here; these two people are definitely together.

    I like this very much.

  12. Somehow, although B&W is the hook here, you have awakened & included fire, in the red rose & in your own body (& ours); so very romantic & sensual. One can only hope that this fellow is real, & the sonata he played was upon your lovely person.

  15. Powerfully sensual--using those piano keys was a great idea for a perfect "harmonious" metaphor.

  16. Oh.. true.. the piano can be a wonderful
    tool of expressing true love..
    and for me not with
    much talk.. 'then'..
    it is pArt of a ticket
    to a 25 year wife..
    (she is 19 then..)
    i no longer play
    but what lives
    of creativity
    still exists
    on YouTube
    way..:)

  17. The black & white keys in a piano, i love that notion. You've written a passionate piece, Truedesa, that is almost like a song---romantic & deep! The part that includes the angels dance is my favourite part in here. Lovely!

  18. Piano keys seem to be a popular topic for this prompt. And yet each poem is different. I enjoyed this one. Peace, Linda

  19. Hey Truedessa!

    Harmony and me, are pretty good company. The keys are the key to your piano harmony.

    Nicely done, thoughtful one.

    Gary :)

  20. So many musical entendres. I love it. This definitely did not fall flat or end on a sour note.
