Songs, Sirens, Starlings

..

Treble-tremble me loose
oh,
{adagio slow}
untroubled and stanza’d
soft.

Hold me. Un
-fold me to the tempo
of timbre trees,
slur me
………….{legato}
to an indigo sky.

Cadenza me
a seasoned sonata
chant,
a rococo rant,
a tiny shanty by the sea.

..
Victoria has us making music of words over at dVerse. Come play.

    Sounds quite relaxing, you should put it to melody.

  2. Edward Rinaldi says:

    near as I can tell a
    dancing cerebellum
    music doth lift my body adroitly
    tuned to where wearing words be not off key

    staccato slang sinewy bitten
    sirens do call me Winter mittens

    ———

    as always you’re a treat to read and this one wassails …

    Cadenza me…..now that’s a sultry statement!! 🙂

  4. kanzensakura says:

    Lovely lovely lovely. You always make your words dance. Treble-tremble me….love those words!

  5. You are the best verb-maker, De. My favorite is treble-tremble. This flows so well.

  6. lifelessons says:

    Hmmm. Started one this afternoon and got distracted. Wonder if I can find it…

  7. Sabio Lantz says:

    Pretty — and the latin jazzed it up!

  8. Edward Rinaldi says:

    And another thing …
    what a beautiful dance of melody and rhythm to end the piece with … sublime 3-2-3 syllabic triple ending “ee” sound … it reminds one of carnivals, Fellini and how the ocean breathes in a certainty of music, a certainty of every myth we dare to put ourselves in and through …

  9. Sanaa Rizvi says:

    Oh De❤️ this is absolutely splendid!! Love, love “a seasoned sonata chant, a rococo rant, a tiny shanty by the sea.”❤️

  10. Wow this was wonderful, the line-breaks, makes me think of something quite modern, like rites of spring or something like that.

  11. Misky says:

    Brilliantly imagined!

  12. kim881 says:

    Your words are dancing across my screen, De! I do love those lines:
    ‘Hold me. Un
    -fold me to the tempo
    of timbre trees,
    slur me
    ………….{legato}
    to an indigo sky.’
    .

  13. so playfully provocative and sensual in some ways ( at least to my ears) I loved every second of this.

  14. gypsy snow says:

    You are the most adorable thing. 🙂 So many goodies here. As a whole, it’s fantastic. But also, the opening stanza stands alone as a kinky little yummy something. Same with the second, actually. I especially like:
    “Un
    -fold me to the tempo
    of timbre trees”
    “s/lur(e) me” 🙂
    and the leg/toe in that “legato” … or is it “leg ate O”? 😛 Or “trees leg-ate oh” (because of the stacking)

    I too like “Cadenza me” … but my absolute favorite is “rococo rant.” Roe cocoa rant. That’s when we’re all like, “We want sushi and hot chocolate RIGHT NOW, man!” 😉

    This is unique and lovely to me. Treble-tremble. What a great usage here. More, please…this was very inventive…something I almost never achieve. But you did….marvelously.

  16. Glenn Buttkus says:

    Yes–verb maker extraordinaire for sure. I love the way you wrestle words into your own vibe. Like Kim, you had me at /slur me/legato/to an indigo sky/–line breaks were stunning as well.

  17. Truedessa says:

    Slur me into an indigo sky .. yes, to that I can relate! Take me to those beautiful undigo skies!

  18. a rococo rant,
    a tiny shanty by the sea.

    A stop-over at the shanty shack by the sea should be fun. Serene peaceful and breezy!

    Hank

  19. Bryan Ens says:

    A very romantic use of those words!

  20. Now this is a poem I can sway to! Love it, De.
