Music is Chinese Twilight  by Klaus Schønning

Pained piano keys compose a chorus-less composition. Melancholic moods crave to sway back and forth like bluebells and lilies dancing, when kissed by the morning breeze Forlorn flute flirts with sympathetic tunes, echoing vivid vibrations, piercing layers of a forgotten heart. Somber undertones seduce the soul as it struggles to swim, silently immersing in sorrowful symphonies. Yet the orchestra is mute - slumbering in the ruins of unfinished musings. Ignorant to the heartbroken harp that lusts to strum romantic melodies, but stands in sincere elegance, decaying as dust suppresses its emotions. Lyrics float by, searching for a home, but remain unheard in the absence of the viola. Its loss has become an enemy to violin strings, crippled from cries yearning for their cello comrades. Alone their music does not co-exist and falls upon deaf ears. Music has no providence, yet the mind is lost in its province. Searching for soothing serenades that softly sail ships towards shores strumming sweet strings. Sometimes harmonies struggle to enlighten in solitude, but when composed together, their lyrics live forever. The Silent One Simple Musings 21 November 2017

"Yet the orchestra is mute - slumbering in the ruins of unfinished musings." I like that you understand undertones and overtones, and things like that. My favorite line - "Music has no providence, yet the mind is lost in its province." I like your graceful play on words SO. Music is gonna put me to sleep. XD Always, Laura

Alluring alliteration done w/angelic grace, SO. This poem is so intricately elegant. I love alliteration poetry. The theme is rich in emotional breadth of expression. The imagery ... what can one say --- it's beautiful and evocative of such sensual sadness. A romantic elixir of potent poetry. Great write from your cosmic pen. Love and best wishes always.

I really like the ending part how you summed everything up about lyrics to live forever. I don't really know enough about the workings of instruments to do this kind of poem. Great work!
