Lazuline Pearls

Lazuline Pearls

A Poem by David W Moore III
"

an exerpt from From the Midst of the Maelstrom © 2010 David W Moore III

"
Just when the first note begins, 
the obsidian cowl nods,
and it ends.  
Infinite reflection 
reveals nothing: 
no effervescent brook 
no dialating candescence 
no opus magnum 
just a note 
echoing hauntingly. 

Oh sing a song! 
Sing a song never begun. 
Only the echo remains. 

Lazuline pearls drop 
bounce and return. 
The vacuum resonates 
reverberates 
searching 
longing 
yearning 
instruments at hand, 
trembling slightly. 

Oh sing a song! 
Sing a song never begun. 
Only the echo remains. 

The chromic rale 
and ursula tamed 
waiting 
anticipating 
humming 
thrumming 
the void tugging 
pulling to be filled. 

Oh sing a song! 
Sing a song never begun. 
Only the echo remains. 
Rejoined by the cosmic choir. 
The echo remains 
echo remains 
remains.

evocative of something in and on a grand scale...and yet with such descriptives as nothing echoe longing vaccuum and void to effectively reflect that something haunts as an absentee...i see the pearls fall...hear their thud thud thud thud upon the floor and sense some deep and eternal sadness in the song that never began...it is a song all the same...creating a sad ambience for which...i suppoose...you were aiming...strong piece...i respect and appreciate its existence...

It is very precise…
Your choice of images…
To convey the theme….
A peculiar feeling…threads the entire poem…
Which I cant put into words…
Loved it so much…

the echos of a song never begun, even the cosmos joins in...beautiful and yet so sad...the echos always remain with us.

This is beautiful... There's a deep sorrow and longing.

This sounds like it could be turned into a four part choral piece, I love it. Beautiful tribute to your son.

Elegant, classic, hauntingly elegiac.

"The chromic rale/and ursula tamed/waiting/anticipating/humming/thrumming/the void tugging/pulling to be filled." This was particularly intriguing, the packed arcana in such simple syllables.

The "echo remains" refrain extends the melancholy air into the greater abiding Mystery.

the echoes of a song never begun...yet sung all the same...reverberating in the depths of yearning core...resonating within sapphire shadows of longing...a melody set within despondent tones...carried upon flow of heart that has been sliced and splayed and turned inside out...evocative and lachrymose

i sensed the music of your heart
a longing to keep a memory alive
the love never dies
beautiful
