Sriram Janak – Photography

A song…

I heard a song, a morning as I walked…
It came on as I passed…a song from far away, about a lost love. At least so I imagined,
I didn’t understand the words,
only the melody.
But in the low notes I could hear the loss one had suffered.. And in the
high notes understood too that it was a song about
something that could never be.
I had not wept in years.
But I did, there and then, on the side of a dusty street,
surrounded by strangers.
The melody stayed with me for years….

  6. Emotion can always be expressed more deeply via the melody of a song dear Sriram. and I wonder to what melody this man has witnessed throughout his life.. Yet still he sits and plays, so that others too may enjoy the harmony of sound!..

    Wishing you well dear Siriram and a peaceful weekend ahead ..
    Blessings Sue x
