96th Challenge - Every Heart Sings A Song Incomplete until ...

a poem by Drsudarsan Damodar Prasad, India

A melody takes birth
I love it more than my life breath
Every unheard melody is an original;
Sweet and all soul
Stemming from the soul
Returning back to its abode in the soul

One melody and another melody
When they decided to create beauty
Through a bond:
Not earth bound ,
Not soaring heavenward
Decided to travel hand in hand ,
Through the rugged and jagged land
Thorns and sharp stones ignored !

A higher harmony was born
Magical and love lorn
Borne on the wings of nascent love ,
Crossing oceans and vast tracks of land -barren ,
Stopping only to admire Beethoven,
Mozart and their kinsmen
Their works of art , their higher harmonies
Getting air borne, assuming immortal airs
Fueling the dreams of poets and lovers ,
Stirring their souls, quickening their pens,
Liberating those pristine notes
From their prisons of musical sheets

A simple song of love ,
Turns into a melody
Two such melodies merge into a harmony,
I too yearn for that priceless moment ,
When my unsung song of love,
Is sung as duet ,
With the whole world eager to accompany ,
Orchestrate and merge it into a harmony
Following its haunting melody ,
One of its kind, a true original
As any love story of love , pure and spiritual
Devoid of all that is merely physical !

THANKS FOR A SWELL AND MUSICAL TITLE 'RICH 'RICHARD , ANY BODY WILL SING WITH SUCH A WINSOME TITLE !
