Music, Oh, The Changes It Makes!

  • Music changes me,
    • Bringing words to mind and pen,
    • Unbidden, and sometimes 
    • Of unknown origin or destiny.
  • Music brings images of gentle times,
    • Even horrible times to my conciousness,
    • Unwanted or desired, but still they intrude.
  • Music ebbing and flowing,
    • Imitating life full of emotion and action,
    • Cannot be held at bay, even gentle, yet forceful.
  • Music changes me,
    • Washing me clean of past and focuses on the now.
    • Uncontrollable like a tidal current coming and going.

  • I am amazed at how music plays a vital part in my life and how it changes me.  One example is when I have a migraine.  Everyone I have met that suffers from migraines want dark rooms and quiet, very quiet space.  I prefer to turn music on and volume up. Smooth Jazz, Country Western, Rock, Gospel, even Classical.    The music displaces some of the discomfort and I can fall asleep.   I wrote this poem while watching and listening to the San Francisco Symphony at Davies Hall in San Francisco, CA.
