melody

teen aged effervescence jazzed
with the blues of adolescence
anxieties drummed up the heartbeats
soul searchin' thoughts rock n rolled

first romances light or heady
did awaken a melody

me,the mountain's heightened stupor
you,the forest's wilderness song
stars' distant psychedelic blinks
glowed in the night's carbon eons

passionate moons clouds unsteady
did awaken a melody

twilight years' blurred vision's haze
the lil' tit bits of life amaze
shimmering joys glimmering griefs
in every twinkle love's beliefs

i know o-blah-dah o-blah-dee
did awaken a melody../original/z.g.

  2. There are several lines that just tickle my tongue! I agree with egretsnest, and I also love "first romances light or heady did awaken a melody".

    It reminds me of the quikening rythm of my heart when I first fell in love! Thanks for this!

  4. I think I loved the mountain's heightened stupor, simply because it represented a brief wry smile in the midst of more serious matters.

    An interesting write!

  14. I agree with others - so many wonderful lines in this journey... My favorites I think are: "me,the mountain's heightened stupor/
    you,the forest's wilderness song"

    Took me a minute to connect to obladi /oblahda, but when I did, it took me into the music.

  15. Ah
    o-blah-dee, o-blah-dah
    The Beatle's song
    Yes I know the tune although I'm not a fan of them

    You thought I was joking but no I wasn't - LOL - and you thought that train on mine was from somewhere near Liverpool - well I may have had in mind steam trains that once ran in that neck of the woods but none like that were ever seen in the UK. It looks typically American to me - the photographer, lori bierly (you can follow the link on her byline) is from New York.

  19. The verse

  20. I so enjoyed this poem. "The lil' tit bits of life amaze", every little bit in the song of life counts. Thanks for this melodic journey!

  22. i'm now looking forward to reading your posts and this did not dissapoint! ob-lah-dah ob-lah dee indeed, how suitably located in the poem. Cool!

  23. Oh, this is nicely taking me through life's journey with beautiful music along the way.

    When it comes to romance, I am a teenager, so the light heady feeling awakening a melody is very sweet. I did like the likening of mountain's heightened stupor (I'll think of it as disbelief) and forest's wilderness song very much.:)

  24. I like the shimmering" line, sounds like a romance forgotten

  25. Hmmm … hard to miss the Beatle’s reference and definitely fun to respond to your ‘melodious memories’ too! Mine's up finally at Sacred Ruminations this afternoon.
    Hugs and blessings,
