Food For The Soul

The music's insistent beat 
flows through the night air
filling my heart up with joy
setting my feet tap tapping

The drummer sets the beat
the guitars keeping in time
hauntingly the notes soar out
the world for a moment paused

Listening, uplifted , knowing
history is being made tonight
as the fiddler sweeps his bow
across the strings so magically

As the last notes fade away
the audience goes totally wild
encore by the dozen they want
so on the music soars and flows

    Shadow, the energy is uplifting creating the imagery of music throughout. I love the many acoustical sounds and felt the fiddles and banjos, possibly Mumford and Sons making the crowd go wild... :)

    Somewhat Enchanting And What A Blessing To Be Given Such As This Wonderful Evening Within Escapism So To Speak, Beautiful Shadow ˜ Music Has Been An Ointment For Thousands Of Years Unto Many And Many A Heart As Soul ˜ Yet, While We Kick Up Our Feet Falling Into These Magical Moments But A Blink, There Are Countless Other Priceless Lives Suffering The Pangs Such Pain Within This Place ? Let Us Never Forget, Their Beauty ˜ Thank You For Your Kind Lovely Visit, Love, John

    Love your creation for music. That's what music does for us. One of the few things that unifies all people!

    Wow...As a hopless music junkie I am VERY curious as to the music genre you are referring to in this beautiful verse!...I live in south Louisianne and love Cajun and Zydeco...Jo-El Sonnier is my favorite...Also a fan of Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks AND the fiddle playing at the end of 'Baba O'Riley' by the Who among many others too numerous to mention here (Okay, I will stop rambling now) - Tim
