Ode to Jazz

Ode to jazz
You make my feeling magnify
You keep that sweet melody moving
Grooving in my mind
Giving me magnetic orgasms that birth my pride
The feeling you exude is so desolate
So further cross the border than I could get
On my own
And I remember when we first met

So sweet I believed I was in love

And then… I learned about your past
Entranced I would get
When I would hear others talk about ya
I was in love
With every point of your expression
With every beat of your percussion
I wanted to participate in your discussion
You give me the time and tenderness I need
The peace and forgiveness I need
Ode to jazz
the creator of fires and desires to…
create more eloquent solitudes of beginnings that conspire
that drip and drip until you let it expire
when I’m not with you with the others I tire
they don’t do me like you do
they don’t treat me like you do
they don’t nurse the pain I feel throughout my days
they have no idea what else to say
when I act out and I retreat to blaze
there you are again jazz
ode to jazz
cause the things you’re doin to me are magnificent
ode to jazz
I’m fine without the other gentlemen
Cause you have a way of making them translucent
And I’m impressed by what we have become

The y-o-u’s and the U-S is all I can express
Jazz the only cross between crazy and delusional
They don’t know me if they don’t know you
Me and jazz see we have history … see we’ve been through some things
And nothing can change that
Me and jazz see shared first loves … and making ups and give it ups and ups and downs and loves lost and found yeah
And when love’s lost jazz is the remedy to treat the wounds
Jazz can find that love again… the bait to lure him back in
And if he doesn’t I’ve still got you as a friend
So blaze on I will… as I feel the bass and the keys falling to the floor weak in the knees
I
Can’t believe how you knock me off my feet
I
Digress
For nothing compares to you
I digress
Ode to jazz

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
