The Musician



Heavens sang in rains as he played the flute
The musician at the restaurant
Between sips of cold beer and corporate snippets
We listen to the songs of words we knew in our hearts
His flute had a bead tied to it
And his eyes sang of a pain forgotten yet not gone
His hands on the flute spoke
Of a dream divine afraid to be spoken about
All that mattered among loud conversations
And alcoholic illusion of an evening’s celebration
Was a music, that flowed in slow motion
He sat there not a part of many faces
And yet was the unwitting backdrop
Not seen and yet
Filling each iota of space with his soul
The nameless flute player who made the evening
precipitate to a flight of fancy of choice
Listen to the waves of love for the blue one
Of chains of bondage turning gold
And in each piece he played a story only he knew
Yet shared with any soul
