Mindly Melodies


Dark is when you can’t visualize
Myth is till you seek the truth
Blind is the one who can’t perceive
Sorrow is till you can’t overcome..


Illusion is till you reach a resolution
Dilemma reaches you to a decision
A sound is a noise till you can’t decipher
Beauty is what pleases your senses


Word is when you learn to spell
You speak the language to communicate
If you read it through, it’s a verse..
If not, it will float in the cyber- world


It’s all in your Mind- how you read-
Your Life, stances and relationships..
It’s all upto you; how you turn around-
Singing your Past, making your Future a Melody..!!

    oh..this is totally friggin’ brilliant…and awesome!!
    And guess what! It is in perfect coordination with my blog name too “how I write is mine…bla bla”… it’s all about perception and interpretation, baby! I think I have even written some prose about it (well…something similar anyway)! Here it is, if you wanna read my ramblings… hehehhe

    Anyway, coming back to your poem! Really, hats off to you on this one! LOVED it!!! No kidding!

    Dearest Olivia, your future will indeed be melodious.

    A powerful mind over matter poem. Love your bejewelled goddess. She’s saying, “Look at me, I’m beautiful, strong, wise, seductive and don’t mess with me!”

    Excellent One Shot!

    This is beautiful and compelling. I might ask you to challenge yourself to take it up a notch just as an exercise. Substitute other verbs for “is” and see if the poem changes. Someone offered me that exercise once. It changed my approach to writing poetry. But I wouldn’t diminish your poem at all. It really is quite musical! Thanks so much, Gay

    Lots of wisdom in this Olivia! It’s as if you have wrapped the mysteries of life into sixteen profound sentences. What I like
    is that you have not given ‘definitions’…you have sprinkled it
    with philosophies…Excellent work!

    smiles. yes we each have a song to sing, and it comes from our perspectives….the hardest is to see it from another and still appreciate the music…nice one shot

    oh so beautiful and oh so true…”singing your past, making your future a melody”…i thoroughly enjoyed dancing with your words, drinking their wisdom and sweetness, dazzled by your profound perceptions…your photos are always elegant and mesmerizing, just as your writing…a joy to visit your site and i gain a little more wisdom and passion and love for life…i’ve taken a step higher and i can see so much more in the distance…that’s what poetry can do for our hearts and minds…thank you…

    I really like the idea of singing your past, and choosing to turn toward your future. Sometimes, making a choice to do so is the hardest part. 🙂

    Interesting wordplay and an intruiging poem! Like the perception you give us in your last stanza!

    The whole time I was trying to make sense of the use of “till” and wondering why you were so insistent on using that word, and then it hit me with the lines…
    “It’s all in your Mind- how you read-
    Your Life, stances and relationships..”
    A very good point you made through your poem!

    Like the comparisons of life to music, we do indeed set the ‘tone’ no pun intended.
