Let the music play
I just want to use this poem to say
Remember that all-nighter you put talc
On their floor
Or The time your band came on for that last encore?
This could all end
As venues could close
As in this turbulent future
Which no one knows
Support has been vital
But the government couldn't give a toss
And the local music venue
Could be part of this...

I will miss music most,
when I leave this life.
Yes, I will miss family,
friends, spirit guides.
But words, set to melody,
is champagne for my soul.
between the lines
makes me high on life.
It's a magic carpet ride
to the other side,
where angels annoint wounds,
dreams circle the moon.
Long live music makers,
I love you!

No ticket stress, no queueing at the gate or arena door
A concert like no other we have ever attended before
The front row of my kitchen, sat in my favourite chair
Glass of wine, singing loud, waving my arms in the air
Take that, reunited, straight from their home into mine
The Greatest Day of lock down, together they did Shine
Vintage Mark, up his ladder, in his garage full...

“All I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme.” ~ Mark Knopfler
Sing to me
one more time.
Share the gift
of your romantic
You have the power
to light up the night
with a flick of your pen.
Show us where
and love begins.

The chemistry of lock-down music is key the
Need to look after your
Mood paramount so
Facing an hour or two of ambivalent toil
I tried Macarthur Park
Then Easter Parade and
Now I'm wondering if Richard Harris
Ever met Judy Garland
Or if she was pals with Ginger
Though I suspect not, anyway its
Something to research tomorrow
Between a chorus of tap-dancing e-mails a...

On the piano, I always love to play
Splendid tunes all through the day.
I like to tinkle on those keys.
It brings me joy and brings me peace.
Such music gives me such delight;
It surely makes my soul take flight.
It is a balm - to my mind healing,
Or simply gives a lovely feeling.
Of all composers that there are -
Beethoven is strongest by far.
All his sonatas, which I admire

Spinning the same song
that connected us
gets harder to hear.
Each verse cuts deeper
into what never was,
what could have been,
the longing to be near.
With my fingertips crossing your beard,
your fingers grazing my thighs,
those longing sleepless nights
I’ve waited to be alongside
the one that knew the depth
of my emotions,
facing eye to eye....

I may forget where I put my keys.
I may forget my phone.
I may forget what day it is.
I may forget my way home.
I will never forget sunsets over the ocean.
I will never forget blessings from above.
I will never forget soothing melodies.
I will never forget the love.

At the end of the day
The rain now steadily falls
I’ve laid here for hours
Waiting for sleep to come
Keeping my mind company,
I’ve put a few records on
Spinning my favorites and laying low,
Leonard, Elliot, Thom, and Isakov,
Each song delivers a blow
Throwing me back to years ago
I’ve laid here in the dark for so long
It’s too much trouble to turn the lights on
My mind is heavy

You are enough.
are costs of the

But, then again,
what do I know.

Carrying around two vinyl records
In a plastic case just four inch long
And half an inch wide
How good would that be?
at a hi-tech record player
that lets you copy the sounds you hear
and with the subtle use of ‘PAUSE’
transfer onto a compilation tape.
Moving from format to format
The highlights of a dozen albums...

Glam Rock Man
A stack heeled stomp in platform boots
Trowelled make-up and glitter suits
Feather cut hair and tinted roots
It’s Glam Rock, man,
it’s Glam Rock
Teenage Rampage, Ballroom Blitz,
Radio One plays all The Hits
Driving your dad out of his wits
It’s Glam Rock, man,
it’s Glam Rock
Jackie, Smash, Disco Forty Five
What a great time to be alive...

occult curriculum, whispers of the ancients, leave for letting out secrets
oil lamp kindling catching flames; shining begotten light from passerbys
in between classes, shifting penrose stairs lead into underlying framework on occasion
halls lined with rooks adjacent and curators searching for a select
rites of secret passageways proclaimed, karma to the dark is just a means to an end

Missing life. Empty streets. Cold hearts.
Covering your face what you once criticised on stranger's faces.
Missing love. Empty hearts. Cold air.
Covering the flowers in your heart, the strings of my guitar.
Missing music. Empty stages. Cold rooms.
Covered ears, listening to scary news, not to music anymore.
Missing passion. Empty beds. Cold skin.
Covering all lu...

Every tragedy leaves behind
a trail of tears and
Rona is here to teach us
life is fleeting.
Live in the moment,
don’t wallow in misery.
Celebrate the little things,
smiles, high fives, sunny days...
Dance, sing, be free,
alone in your room,
on rooftops, balconies,
wherever your spirit leads.

Talc on the floor
The music is in rare quantity
For what's in store
Symbol of the night owl
The ll nighters seem to last all day
Phet taken in mass dosage
To dance the blues away
Dapper lads in flares or tonics
With Off shoots of the mods
Are flock to be here
After Trading records at the pub
Drinking that first beer
Who dances the best?

Can you hear me
on this crowded
Is the earth turning
beneath your feet?
Let poetic music
drown the chaos,
set your spirit free.
No more worries.

Through my veins,
Brings me back to
What I am.
I sing and sing again
To kill the silence outside.
My songs, directly from my heart,
My hard chords,
Of all what's forbidden.
My passion resists
In the middle of sounds
©️ By Magical whispers

She doesn’t sing to win awards,
she sings to breathe life to her soul,
connect with spirits tuning in,
let them know they are not forgotten.
She knows she will have critics
that judge her art lacking.
Their negativity is nothing she hasn’t
overcome from herself a million times
on her rocky road to freedom.
She smiles as the ivory tickles her left palm,

Lord, thank you
for this gift
Please help me
with the poems
Help me write
from a place
rather than ego.
Help me project
you give me.

Ten years old,
avoiding horny toads.
Then a teen,
in search of the wizard,
playing pinball, drinking, smoking.
On to adulthood,
pushing back when anyone
crossed the line.
with this karma of mine.
Traveling brick roads
that lead to
But, as long as there is
music and poe...

Songs of love and happiness
Erase all my feelings of sadness
Wipe away these tears
And all my fears
Nothing but blue
When I'm living with you
Nothing but blue
When I'm listening to you,
My songs of sadness
When I wake in the morning
You’re the first thing I want to hear
Start my day with you ever so near
Songs close to my heart
May we never part
I listen to you,
My songs of sa...

The Muse of music
And the Muse of poetry
Please inspire me

Some days there is not enough
chocolate or booze
to chase away the blues
or stop torrential thoughts of love
gone too soon.
What's a lonely girl to do.
The only thing that eases the pain
is music from silent words
thought to be penned in vain.
