The Human Cure

The Human Cure
The Human Cure

Echoes soft like velvet loom,
held aloft in melodic tune,
and soothing breeze enlivens skin,
feeling everything,
as music strokes our doubtful minds,
troubles walked out at half time,
to relax us between sleep and dream,
beauty’s waves of incessant schemes,
flowing through an open mind.

Undulations take us in waves so smooth,
the lilting movement of embrace ensues,
we, in a hammock on a beach,
radiant sun in gentle sea breeze,
keeping us in thoughtless bliss,
kissed by azure skies,
no compromise in fixing our ills,
as notes glide past,
adrift on afferent score.

Each note, each phrase
a beauty in form, the rise and fall
so mesmerizing, a sorely missed state,
relaxing, ears attuned to expressions so beguiling,
tunes so thriving on imagination,
and reaching out to lull us
into a self-induced coma,
where thoughts just be,
and every muscle take leave of senses.

Jazz just fits my mind,
so slow and compelling,
gentle and expelling all my fears,
leading me to a joyous letting go,
flowing with the tide,
ignoring all else to ride this train,
and in rhythms they remain
within my once dark recesses,
now filled with melodies.

Music is emotion for the ears,
the embrace of tears
for beauty’s sake and praise,
all so affirming in life, to feel such sway,
as in vast array music seals our mind
with experience we cannot leave,
we accept and relish
in the healing of our woes,
the flow of human cure.

    I love jazz and also blues. A folk group I was in years ago was so fun, especially when we played jazz. Your words pulled me right into the sound and feeling of jazz, swaying along. Well penned and so enjoyable, Tony.

    Glad you enjoyed it Phyllis, music has always been important to me, as a pro musician and owning recording studios it was my life for many years. I still love playing and thankfully my two sons play as well, so I think we have 8 guitars including bass and slide as well as three keyboards here. Take care.
