A great night music

There are Nightingales singing all around the house. It is wonderful by day, but the real magic came last night. All was fresh after a heavy spring thunderstorm, silent but for a quiet silver dripping that played in the background. The wind had strewn the paths with blossoms from the apple tree. Their white was luminous in the darkness, and the magnolias and anemones echoed the stars, nearer only and more openly grand. The smell of lilacs lay thick over the garden.
And then the nightingales began their song again.
Greatness and humbleness, sorrow and joy, farewell and welcome, hope and remembrance, all of those and more lay in the liquid, rising, drifting notes, in the whole scene, wove it into a complete, stunning music and an unforgettable moment.

  1. OH WOW! THAT WASN’T JUST AWESOME, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. I COULD ALMOST SMELL THE FLOWERS, SEE THE GARDEN WITH ITS PALER FLOWERS SHINING LIKE OTHER WORLDLY IMAGES IN THE MOONLIGHT, HEAR THE RIPPLING SONG OF THE NIGHTENGALE! YOU JUST GAVE TRUTH TO THE SAYING THAT I HAVE POSTED WITH MY AVATAR ON MY BLOG, MARANTHA’S MEMORIES, MUMBLES AND MEANDERINGS…”WRITERS USE WORDS AS BRUSHES TO PAINT PICTURES ON THE CANVASES OF THEIR READER’S MINDS.”
