Sounds of Music

.

one

single

gentle

pluck of the chord

and the sound

vibrates, resonates

stirring the air

shivering, quivering

in my ear

.

one

single

velvet

breath of Pan

and the sound

sooths, smooths

through ev’ry pore

calming, embalming

my core

.

one

single

tender

tap of the skin

and the sound

rebounds, resounds

lost and forlorn

a beat in the tempo

of time

KEEPING AFLOAT

.

Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Beatles and others

I knew nothing of my sisters and brothers

Being a music lover in the past

There was a gap in my education

And I skipped a complete generation

.

I was living like an outcast in the desert

Without a melody, without a harmony

I became a complete introvert

 Missing the compositions of the others

Spending my life submerged in another’s

.

There was only one goal for me

To live my marriage in harmony

I kowtowed to the man of the house

Like other members of my generation

Not realising the extent of my deprivation

.

AUDREY HEPBURN-MOON RIVER by pierrot77

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I’m crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you’re going I’m going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There’s such a lot of world to see.
We’re after the same rainbow’s end–
waiting ’round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

Based on Truman Capote’s 1958 novella of the same title, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S (1961) is the story of a woman on her own making her way in the big city. As stories go, it is short on plot but rich in characterization which may explain why its protagonist, Holly Golightly, has become Audrey Hepburn’s most memorable screen persona. In the hands of director Blake Edwards, the film neglects much of the book’s foreboding edge, but gains an unforgettable comedic touch which actually helps accentuate the darker moments. In addition, Henry Mancini’s musical score and Hubert de Givenchy’s gowns for Ms. Hepburn successfully uphold Capote’s style when the story itself is forced to leave his writing behind. Like the protagonist at its heart, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S is quirky, funny, bewildering, serious, sophisticated and bittersweet — and as movies go, great entertainment.

Audrey Hepburn

One of a kind to say the very least, Audrey Hepburn came to Hollywood, skinny, with bushy eyebrows and rat-gnawed bangs– yet she changed the definition of class and glamour for a generation and the effects can still be seen today. But Audrey was not a fashion model. Besides a pretty face, she was a fine actress and scored hits in several romantic comedies as well as a few dramas– overall earning five Best Actress Nominations.

Some Enchanted Evening

Sorry, no time – no rhyme. But a golden oldie for today… enjoy!

Some Enchanted Evening

Emile:
Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger,
you may see a stranger
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you’ll see her
Again and again.

Some enchanted evening
Someone may be laughin’,
You may hear her laughin’
Across a crowded room
And night after night,
As strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter
Will sing in your dreams.

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons,
Wise men never try.

Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love,
When you feel her call you
Across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side,
And make her your own
Or all through your life you
May dream all alone.

Once you have found her,
Never let her go.
Once you have found her,
Never let her go!

A Song in my Head

A Song in my Head

There’s a song in my head
And it won’t go away – not today.
There’s a song on my brain
And it’s making me insane:
The notes just evolve and revolve
In a never-ending wheel,
Around and around, ‘til I find
I can’t get them out of my mind.

The end and the start
Are embedded in my heart
And the tune is so great
That it’s hard to think straight.
An inspired melody
With spontaneous harmony,
Forever restrained
In the confines my brain.
