Playing around the Garage Band

Music has been in my life for a long time.  I picked up a guitar when I was 13 and love to still pick it up.  In college I took music, but found it just wasn’t my thing, I just didn’t have it.  It was hard but I had to let it go, it still stings, to tell the truth.  But, anyway, I love to play around with the track mix on Garage Band and here is one I came up with today.

How true flight feels

(See this link for the music:
J.S. Bach – Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major BWV1007‬)

first draw of bow to string, that root note
runs down my spine, seeks my heart, then
I’m lifted, lightened, worldly burdens
fall away, as a craft ever climbing
on a buoyant, rhythmic breeze
seeks the azure above the pall
circling ever higher, with it
intensifying emotions, linking
joy, bliss, jubilant notions with
tears I can not find label for
then, a surprise of August 8, 2008
my Marina, knowing my love for this piece
had a cello player place this as she
came down the isle toward me
imbuing upon my heart, an image
forever linked to this music
