singing soprano


crumbs of bread on that table
wedge of a mango falling out 
of that pickled jar
I evade the chaos
unbuckle my gloves
and sit down to make a list
leaky tap reminds me of Mozart song
that list  I make goes like this..
I need a few sopranos
some notes to go with it
maybe that opera singer too
Bach will not do,
Beethoven is not what I wish for
I only need music
loud, noisy, nonsensical
that will clear the chaos you see here

Beautifully lyrical. I really loved reading Singing Soprano.

"... clear the chaos you see here"... music does this for many. Silence, meditation, gardening, writing do it for me. Funny how we all seek similar ends through varying means.

Shail, I am GAUTAMI not Gayatri...

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Sorry about that Gautami. I knew I had made a mistake and came back to find your reply prompto. My niece Gayatri sent me a SMS on my cell in the middle of my comment and I faltered...

Out of chaos comes music.
Well done.

Gautami, here I sit in the frozen north of the US and all I can think of is when I lived in Puerto Rico and could have ripe mango whenever I wanted.

OK, as to your writing, so rich, as always. I love your style, your heart, the music that plays within.

Peace, Amy

G,

I love your consistent economy. In this poem, undoing the gloves causes the lack of discipline in writing the list.

Good one.
