Magical melodies

Image source
In the din that surrounds me, a place of quiet I seek to find,
But the every where I go is restless, just like the state of my mind.
My life seems to be empty and I’ve lost direction,
I am scared now of yet another rejection.
As I walk towards nowhere,
I hear few strains of music in the air. 
The notes have an aura of their own,
It is seems to be the best piece of music I’ve known.
I’m drawn now to the place from where it comes,
I hear closely, there is no violin nor drums.
The music comes from a flute,
And the surrounding din is now on mute.
I listen closely and the music I enjoy,
It is like it has turned on within me the switch of joy.
A soothing calm sweeps me,
And now my spirit feels free.
The flute seemed to have worked it magic,
And I realize my life isn’t that tragic.
If the emptiness in a flute when filled properly can make magical melodies,
Why can’t I fill my life’s emptiness and make wonderful memories?

    Got chills while reading this. Once upon a very long time ago, I used to play the flute. Its music still nourishes my soul. Thanks for the beautiful reminder!

  3. Totally relatable! Though, instead of a flute, I prefer my mp3 player! 😀

    Oh. The flute's music is quite enchanting and soothing. 🙂 Used to listen to it a lot. Nowadays, the din of life has taken over, as has the MP3. Though the MP3 of a flute sometimes works.

  5. Beautifully written. It is a reflection of life!

  6. Being inspired by the most unlikeliest of things 🙂

    You can do it. What is stopping you?
