Let the music play

Spread the love

20160718_171450

The air is thick with the scent of summer rain
I sigh and recline beneath the canopy of clouds
Observe city bathe in light of hopes and dreams

Listen close as morning plays mellifluous tune
We loiter down lone alleys of muse and delight
Breathe in honeysuckles both yellow and white

Without music our life would be a mistake.

    Having raised two musicians, life without music would indeed be a mistake — like the mute used in the trumpet, it would indeed dampen our souls.

    the smell just after the rain is awesome…we are about to get hit with a tremendous storm right now…hail and torrential rain, so perhaps after i can enjoy it…the city alight with hopes and dreams would be a wonderful sight as well…interesting i dont know that i ever thought of honeysuckle in the city, i always associated it with the country…it does smell lovely though, warmed by the sun.
