Tides of gratitude
Wheel in aquamarine circuits,

They melt into the planetary center
& mingle with its garnet blood.

The volcanic heart thrums in
Gentle-emphatic brutality:
Its callous umber protects
From cosmic cataclysm
With fists of ore.

The earth golem core, drinking
Oceans from a crusted goblet,

Swimming through transformation of
Lapiz & seafoam dynasties,

Uncaring fire itself,
Transparent with agelessness,
Nests in the banished centre
Where colorless time spins
On its axis spewing the lime ice.

Love-laced hydro-dynamo of aeons
Flow, oh ever-swirling, grow.

I wrote this poem last night as a reflection on the volatile and unstable nature of emotion compared to the almost brutal strength of cosmic forces. This is the first time I've ever recited a poem to a beat. I chose a good tempo (160 bpm) and improvised some rhythms for the words. Then I composed the accompaniment part for piano and acoustic bass (both recorded with samples on my Yamaha Montage keyboard.) I sourced a free domain recording of a campfire for the ambient background noise. Tuning is A = 432 hz in equal temperament. Tempo is 160 bpm in the key of Eb major. This was quite enjoyable to create! It's the first time I've ever put music to any of my poems. I'll provide an explanation of each stanza below for those interested. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to read/listen!

Lines 1-4

(Tides of gratitude...its garnet blood)
Depicts the magnetic force of universal gratitude as an ocean that floods through everything, even the magmic center of the Earth.

Lines 5-9

(The volcanic heart...fists of ore.)
The planet is paradoxically gentle and brutal. Its density which allows for an atmosphere to exist, protects us from harmful cosmic radiation and the frigidity of space.

Lines 10-13

(The earth golem core...seafoam dynasties.)
Metaphorizes the core of the earth as a powerful golem whose libation is the ocean, drinking from the goblet of the earth's crust. It remains steady through the surface dynasties of humans on its blue-green surface.

Lines 14-18

(Uncaring fire itself...spewing the lime ice.)
Refers to the divine fire and its obscure home in the Unmanifest (banished centre.) Though fiery, it spews the "lime ice" (metaphor for the relative coldness of the compassion, gratitude, and love, etc. that humans experience, since they are typically conditional in nature.)

Lines 19-20

(Love-laced hydro-dynamo...ever-swirling, grow.)
An affirmation that love in its philosophical sense is the undergirding of all space and time that ever-generates.

Friends have presented you many good poems. It really needs to be appreciated. And I liked your video too.
I wish you good health. @d-pend


i like his poems too @d-pend

I love the ambient effect of the crackling fire! Let me know if you need more ambient for your projects because I travel around the world and record sounds.


This is a great source for us all. Thanks for posting sound files. Actually my next question was, "Where can we get good public domain sounds?"


Yeah i agree too a very unique sound and also recording soud from scratch is very important. as a music producer myself i do this often

Awesomely inspiring, beautiful rhythm and visuals! I am new to steemit, have not been on this tag much, I have poetry of my own, however I do not have music nor pics to go along with it yet. I will be posting soon. Thank you for your hard work.....

Nice poetry! I am new here and I also put interest in poem but I am still struggling with mark down and code that probably you could help. How could we put the sentences in center alignments just like you did? thank you in advance!

An awesome poem.. When words and sounds relate with the inner mind.. Thanks for sharing

My thoughts about nature, which is mysterious and unpredictable. Nature has many facets of personalities and yet, we all love nature as it stands. I’ve written a poem about the conflicting qualities of nature below:

Nature is friendly,
When nature is tamed.
Nature is beautiful,
When nature is lushful.

Nature is brutal,
When nature is vengeful.
Nature is violent,
When nature is ardent.

But we all love nature,
In all forms of adventure,
And in all of its glories,
Nature blesses us with wonderful memories.

Wonderful I like it thanks for sharing


Thank you for checking it out @mindhunter07!

What can I say that won't add to the universal force of gratitude?

You have me smiling again @d-pend. One my main purposes to on Steemit is to smile and so for what it is worth, "Congratulations!" The music that goes along with the post was just a few chords and a synthesized flute but so groovy and fit the poem wonderfully.

Its callous umber protects
From cosmic cataclysm
With fists of ore.

  • Visions of the earth's origins come to mind. I'm humbled by this Stellar poem and enlightened by the sweet music that accompanies it. This music reminds me a lot of what Lee Mendelson wrote for "Peanuts". It's a sweet sound to my ears.

  • The poem describes a cosmic activity but implies a "human experience." I really appreciate the humanity you share with us. I appreciate the time you put into these posts. I will try to follow your example and provide the best for our community using the resources available.

  • I still don't know where to begin to express gratitude if my words just flow over into the magma of the core of the earth. Thank you for inspiring me and making me smile today. Although these words of mine just add to the flood I'm glad I said it.

The Giant Golem eating my "thank you"


who wana go with me there

The volcanic heart thrums in
Gentle-emphatic brutality:
Its callous umber protects
From cosmic cataclysm

Love the accompanying explanation of the lines. Poetry can be so subjective and when it comes to platforms like steemit/other popular social media sites beautiful poetry can be "lost in translation" due to a lack of the ability to analyze literature. I enjoy creating my own meaning from others work but its also awesome to read the insights of the author. Great work

The music was perfect to go with your poem loved it you are a genius!❤️

This is beautiful


Very nice taste, keep it up!

Wow did you modify the voice? I love the tapping sound like reggae that keeps repeating it's amazing,

You're really exploring your abilities I wish I can do more too I like the piece it's sonorous and well also mild to listen, it's so beautiful buddy

This is fresh, thank you @d-pend

Wonderful... This is beautiful...Love it

Great work. How do come up with such original material?

I hope you can help me, because I newcomer steemit, I have not understand him.

Really beautiful piece....

Nice poem dear

That second stanza hits home with me. The heart with a violence of sorts keeps us alive. In terms of your poem, it's like we must hit back just a little at the cosmos if we wish to persist within it. Makes sense when you think about it. Fantastic write here. I also do poetry and am very new to the sight. Given your popularity on here, you are probably super busy, but if you get a chance stop by my blog. Just a bit there now ... a couple haiku and light-hearted poem about seizing life. But definitely more to come. Again thanks for this great write. Pryde

Wow!! For the first time in a long time, I feel like I have an inner mind. This one got to me. Thank goodness Steemit rewards people for their work because you deserve all the reward you can get.
Kudos!! @d-pend

sungguh menakjubkan puisi dan musikalisasi anda saya sangat suka

It's very unusual and cool at the same time! Music and poetry are increadible. Nice to hear so qualititative sound on Steemit! What inspires you to compose?

love the sincerity and the heartfelt nature of this. I also love the sound. As a music producer it really inspires me.

Beautiful lines Daniel. Loved hearing and reading. Regards Nainaz.

"I wrote this poem last night as a reflection on the volatile and unstable nature of emotion compared to the almost brutal strength of cosmic forces."

You've made great records. I am a music lover and love to listen to new things.

I have a writing about a few songs I used to love. maybe it attracts interest :)

What the hopion of our emotions if not the opium of lust?
Our emotions lease out tears to my eyes for a ride
Am lost without a music to my cochlea.

Nice poem you have here. Write on!!

Amazing poem! One thing? Dont you think explaining your poem takes away the emotional reactions one gets from Viewing/Hearing/Feeling art which can affect ppl differently?

DEEP LYRICS MAN! Im going in psyrock right now and i need to develop in words... check my shit and let mi know where am I!

Me gusta un buen trabajo
