Symphony of Seduction

Prism splits into a spectrum of scintillating rays / beguiled
I sing colors / sway to erratic tones / bleached and buffed sky numbs my senses/

A constant drone void of melody /
Tangerine sun bursts with sweetness /
Spilling over / a flirtatious fantasia/

A note out of tune/an obscure shade / distorts the imagination /
True love is not measured in human sensation Once again, not sure if this fit the bill, but here it is.
The writing challenge: Today we will incorporate music in our poem from the perspective of a synesthete. Create your own Symphony. Infuse your musical experience when listening to a band, artist or musical genre, with colors, sounds & textures. Write a song filled with colors.
Joni wrote these brilliant, timeless lyrics. Her voice is an effortless song in itself.

    You’ve touched on the immeasurable here which I think is what music does, and your writing does the same: beautiful!

    Rob, you and I have created a trio of Joni poems, Mary, al different. I love the way you use alliteration and colour to create your poetic symphony, Mary. I especially love ‘ bleached and buffed sky numbs my senses’ and ‘Tangerine sun bursts with sweetness’, and the final line is so true.


  9. This is a lot like sitting really listening deeply to music…
