Author C. Steven Blue: Rhythm

 

There still are some things

That are natural

Things which you cannot deny

Still some things

That can’t be man-made

Like the sun, the trees and the sky

 

Through whispering canyons

Along waterfall lines

Searching for the wherefore and the why

If you want

You can close your eyes

But don’t let the natural pass you by

 

And . . .

Rhythm . . . is something that’s natural

Rhythm is something that’s real

Rhythm is something you’re born with

Rhythm is something you feel

 

You don’t know how it comes out of you

You feel it comes from above

I don’t know . . . It’s something inside of you

Rhythm is something like love

 

There are natural things

That you can find

No matter where you go

There is all the time

And all the places

To learn what there is to know

 

But in all these things

And all these places

Where do you find the glow

In your life

There is so much to do

And so many feelings to show

 

And . . .

Rhythm . . . is something that’s natural

Rhythm is something that’s real

Rhythm is something you’re born with

Rhythm is something you feel

 

You don’t know how it comes out of you

You feel it comes from above

Rhythm is something inside of you

Rhythm is something like love

Excerpt from the book “Poetic Melodies”


poetic-melodies

Preface . . .

There is a human language that encompasses the globe, regardless of race, color, creed or country. Much the same way as laughter or tears, or any of our human emotions. When we see someone laugh, there is a universal language that is communicated by all of us. We know they are happy. Just as when we see someone crying, it is generally accepted to mean they are, most likely, sad. However, the language I am referring to goes beyond the sight of emotions, and runs deeper than the tear streaked lines of a sad face. I am speaking of a language that can penetrate to the deepest depths of the human psyche, it can be felt in the beating of our hearts and it can leave us soaring among our dreams.

This universal language is music.

Upon these waves of sound we can find our spirits lifted to the heavens, we can feel the beats and the rhythms in our beings and we are moved by the vibrations. We may become lost in a memory or a moment of time may be singled out by the distinct patterns and oscillations of a melody. We may gather by the thousands to listen to this music together or we may be alone in our rooms, or be dancing with our friends or  cuddling with our love, but the universal language of music expands human communication beyond the normal realm. It propels us into the wavelengths of our souls, and it is there that we become in tune, we find our harmonies, and we recognize that there is a true power in music.

The poetry included in this book seeks to capture that essence and tap into that power. These are the lines of communication opened and inspired by the universal language called music.
