Nature's Orchestra
balanced upon the breakwater,
feeling the cold spray
of the passing vessels' props
soaking through my clothes,
I listen to Nature's Orchestra,
from the whispering soprano
of the river's gentle current,
and the wind's moaning tenor,
to the percussion
of the passing boats.
The accelerando and crescendo
brings the entrance of the bass,
rumbling louldy in the distance.
Changing the adagietto
abbandonatamente tempo
to an accentato accarezzévole tempo
as the full symphony
begins to play,
letting me know
that soon I have to go.
Author's Notes:
Unfortunately I have to stop there, because no more words came to me. This is true story, and I got yelled at for being out there like I was. I am sorry if some of the terminology throws you for a loop, I felt that to fully express what I felt, I had to resort to using music terminology from my band playing days.
