Everyday Writing: Chapter 3

* inspired by Rahman's music, of course!*

Notes in the music
unexpectedly arrive
like a favourite guest,
triggering a smile.

You have heard it before
unaware of this scrawl
rawly etched on to the cornerstone.
part of the path, but hidden-
but for that accidental stumble!

And suddenly it is changed
no more stray visits to the song
every time you play it

you'll know that diversion

unwinding now
at that exact expected second

an endeared stranger
a triumph of familiarity
and soon, a friend.
And next time round,
a new intruder stalls!
