Description
Another of particledot's Creative Reboot songs-- "June 18, electric piano."
This one required more than a couple of listens. With the complex chord progression, I needed quite a few listens. And, as I listened, a story unfolded. Once again, I wrote down some lyrics, but allowed myself to improvise some of the lyrics as I worked out the melody to the instrumental.

I like the simplicity of this piece. It's very visual to me, as I can see the scene in my mind's eye.
Thanks, B, for letting me build upon and add to these lovely songs :)
I'm definitely enjoying the journey.

Lyrics
a long time ago he planted his dreams--the gardner.
but now he moves slow, and stooped and unseen, in the garden.
purple and red and orange and pink
blossom and leaf and burgeoning green
everything he wanted to dream.
scarlet and blue and yellow and gold
in the garden
from the gardner.

weedy and withered things--
faded away;
a season of youth to dream
in the age of decay
in the garden.

still he walks through with a smile in his eyes;
the weathering days can never disguise
the beauty relived
and the longing he gave
in the garden.

purple and red and orange and pink,
blossom and leaf and burgeoning green;
everything he wanted to bring.
scarlet and blue and yellow and gold
in the garden
from the gardner.

his story is told
in the garden
in the garden
in the garden….

Those are some great chord changes. But you sure did deliver an equally great melody and vocal performance!

Simple and lovely - what more could we ask for?
Very nice post indeed, and I agree about the visual nature of the music.

Precious
Precious as a fragile pink petal. Delicate, soft and quite moving, you make it sound quite natural and easy, though I'm sure this was not easy. Anyhow, beautiful work.

I love how this became a
tone poem - so visual and sensual. It's great how your voice navigates and relates to the changes in the music. It's more of an experience than a song - if you know what I mean.
