The Art of Seven

In the heart there lives a song
filled with golden stars, blue moon
and amethyst skies that sing to me

in a cave a dragon begins to stir
pounding black & white keys
awakening to musical dreams

but, who will hear the melody

  1. Oh I hear it! I used to live with a man I often called the Black Dragon who had trained to play piano for the concert stage. So I can hear the dragon pounding away. Wonderful poem and yes, you did it correctly

    1. Claudia that is true we must play from the heart for ourselves first !

  4. This is so good. I think Claudia is right. When we make music it happens in our spirit even if there is no one to hear.

  6. Hi Truedessa - now I live looking out on the English Channel - I'm seeing a creamy golden moon - and those skies ... dark midnight blue ...

    But I love the art work - stunning ... and your poem certainly tugs the heart strings ... cheers Hilary

  11. Ooops nearly miscounted there (didn't see the first line to the right) and was about to say - there are only 6!
    The contrast between the song in the heart and the dragon awakening is very nicely done -and yet both have a place in music.

    1. Hi when I view the poem the 7 lines align. I am not sure how it appears on your end, but I am glad you found all seven lines. :)

  17. Love the dragon imagery! As long as we hear our own song, what does it matter if others don't?

    1. Good point - every song could be our own song...

  18. There are rules in poetry. First and foremost: the poet makes the rules. Pretend it's what you meant to write, and let us, the readers, struggle to catch up (or is it struggle to ketchup?). Beautiful music in your poem!
