Sitting here at work I was looking through my Pandora perusing for different artists I could listen to, and I came across Kenny G. Good ol’ Mr. G. His sweet tunes instantly induced a mellow attitude and before I knew it, I was lost in his musical world. Closed eyes, head rested against the cold mahogany table, I fluttered in and out of his magical musical world. The following poem is a result.
Symphony in the Sky
Sitting in an office so boring and bland,
I watch the minutes vanish like grains of sand.
Constant melancholy lurks far and near,
But suddenly, a beautiful melody pries at my ears.
A sound so sweet and pure fills my mind,
A sublime harmony reminds me of the divine.
Soft delicate tones appease my heart,
An approaching crescendo gives my soul a start.
The music soars towards heaven and so do my arms,
Taking me to a place where there is no such thing as harm.
Encompassed by pure bliss, my spirit is free;
Fluttering lazily through heaven gazing down at me.
Slowly the vibrations begin to subside;
I venture to myself in one swift stride.
Blood courses through my veins and I feel revived;
I finally understand what it means to be alive.
