Music: Haiku


Indian Bloggers

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”— Plato

The Greek philosopher and thinker Plato poured his views on music eras back, which are relevant even today. Music has a power to overpower all that is good as well as bad. Music adds to more happiness when you’re cheerful, similarly it melts the solidity of grief with its warmth and healing powers. Music has always been an inseparable part of my life whether I sing or listen to it.


~ Haiku ~                                                                                         ~ Haiku ~

Music engulfs me,
Drapes my myriad moods, yet
I’m told in its folds.

Bewitching beauty
covers my dauntless spirit,
Reveals in my soul.

Magnificence paints
the intrigued me with its fads
A song spurts in me.

Sangeeta Mishra
