Would you not agree that the violins of love are more harmonious than the silent chords of death?

Love is like a flower adorning itself with the prettiest petals to attract the heart with timeless beauty.

The mirror standing between love and sorrow holds the reflection of a man craving the embrace of a maiden whom he can only enjoy in his dreams.

She has the grace and freedom of a woman thirsting for his passionate kisses beneath the empty skies.

Her heart remains dreamy towards him, for this romantic love she feels has become most addictive through the voice she can only hear upon the pages of his beloved poems.

Her fragrant tears upon his lips are the vision he sees every time the beautiful call of love comes to him in the form of the photograph of her pretty face.

Oh maiden, bless my heart with the reality of love and free me from the silence of death before the violins of love stop playing our song.



  1. WoW! Definitely one of my favs from you, Andy! This image is also in my favorites from pictures I've collected on the net :) Your words and the picture = Perfect, winning combination! Love it!

  2. Sooo beautiful, this is a sweet sweet poem.

  3. you gifted me a wonderful morning unknowingly. the song from a secret garden was overwhelming, so soft and soothing. i kept on listening. then started reading "violins of love".

    there is a fine line between reality of love and the smoky dreams that satiate the power of imaginations. in between plays the music of soul, the violins of love. let the music linger on with his presence though untouched.

    wonderful whispering of love.

  14. What's violin for you
    Is a guitar for me
    Someone could well be blowing
    Trumpets of love you see

    And before death embraces me
    And strings can no longer be strummed
    I wish this song of mine be played in your heart
    And on your lips the words be hummed

    Your blog is my poetry practice ground. LOL
