Songs we make


A line from you,
the next from me,
a word you forget,
and expect me to fill in

The spoon hits the mug
in a rhythm you devise
a tune plays on my lips
you approve it with smiles

I fill in more sounds
you stare at me shocked
suddenly fingers drum
nothing holding the flow.

A collective sigh escapes
our collaborative songs
linger  somewhere
in the dream we wove.

  1. Synchronized minds, an orchestra of emotions. Two beings sub-merged in fluid chemistry.

    Beautiful piece.

    Yours sincerely,
    Philharmonic poet.

    Health and happiness to you and yours.

  2. :) Songs we make… I could read myself between the lines even when I could never be able to describe it so well!

    Happy rally, I liked it a lot.

  3. Dearest Lady Nimue, :)

    Thank you kindly for visiting my poetry blog! I am returning the favor by also visiting you here on your blog (for the purpose of strengthening the poetic/writing community as well!).

    I really enjoyed the rhythm of your poem. You brought on a good point in that there is music ALL AROUND us if we keep on listening, including the most mundane things in our lives. Thank you for writing this piece. :)

    Blessings to you,


  4. Aww.. how sweet is that!! Music can be born out of anything.. no? I think that’s the beauty of it…
