Streetcorner Symphony

Saturday, September 08, 2007

*Note: My dear readers, Please bear with me today: it is poetry AND prose :)

It's morning. I wake up. The taste of summer sweetness is on my mind. It's a clear day in this city. Let's go dance under the street lights? All the people in this world, let's come together…More than ever. I can feel it. Can you feel it?

Come on over, down to the corner.

My sisters and my brothers of every different color. Can't you feel the sunshine telling you to hold tight?
Things will be all right. Try to find a better life.

Come on over, down to the corner.

My sisters and my brothers there for one another.
Come on over.

Man, I know you want to let yourself go!

Some people…It's a pity that they go all their lives and never know how to love or to let love go. But it's all right now. We'll make it through this somehow and we'll paint the perfect picture. All the colors of this world will run together… more than ever
I can feel it. Can you feel it?

We may never find our reason to shine, but here and now this is our time
And I may never find the meaning of life, but for this moment I am fine
So,
Come on over…!

These words play over and over in my mind. I think about all the nooks and corners that are familiar, that are familiar to every inch of my body. I think about all the street side dances, and melodious tones. I think about the movies and the laughter and the Frappcinos. I think about the subway and people. I think about home.

Song for the moment: City Girl

  1. "Taste of summer sweetness
    on my mind"

    smell of sea waltzing
    with swaying curtains
    in my bedroom

    a bird outside
    calling its mate

    lazy saturday noon
    Abida signing in
    her primal voice

    count me in...
    am there for the dance :)

  13. thanx dear! for your lovely comment and here goes some poetry for you,


    Yadoon ki kimat woh kia janay,
    jo khud he yadoon mai mita dia kartay hain,
    yaadoon ka matlub tau un say poocho,
    jo yaadoon kay saharay zindagi bita dia kertay hain.
