Scents of flowers and of salt (Poetry and music collab)

Very happy and excited to present you guys my/our first collab of its kind.
Working on this project with Short prose-fiction was such a great  experience.
I hope you’ll enjoy our combined efforts.

Music, production and arrangement – Ankit
Lyrics and recitation – Short prose-fiction

Pain is dripping from guitars
into sunsets with no end
pigeons guide ships lost at sea
tears drop from plumy skies…
love is blowing in the wind
scents of flowers and of salt

Listen to the night of oleanders
to the magic of the key which turns
take me to the kiss of no return
when the sky is turning blue
and we’re centuries apart
let me kneel in front of you

  1. Ankit you’re so talented! The guitar was intense and mystical! And these lines –
    “take me to the kiss of no return 
    when the sky is turning blue 
    and we’re centuries apart 
    let me kneel in front of you”

      1. You’re welcome Ankit. I stopped using wordpress for 3 weeks or so, had to attend some personal matters. Still a bit occupied now, once settled down on the new place, will be reading regularly in wordpress again. But I’m trying to catch up reading bit by bit these days.
