Incomprehensible melody

Piano Playing 2

How funny it is to be sitting here next to you

And it is unexpected, it is
such a miracle for us to be here right now.
It´s such a marvel how beautiful this melody
we´ve been perfoming sounds.
The sound is absolutly gorgeous, peaceful, authentic
and at the same time it is difficult and full of flats.
But what it´s even more incredible is how incomprehensible this melody seems to be to almost every human being on this city,
on this country, maybe even on this planet.
They really can´t listen to it... they don´t even try sometimes.
But I understand it, and you understand it too.
That´s all it takes, that´s everything we really need.

I'm intrigued with "full of flats" which I presume is reflecting the difficulting of the performing rather than of the listening. When listening to someone who is tuned flat, it is painful. When playing something with many flats (especially when they're not in the key signature) that offers challenges. Lots of flats in the key signature tends to produce a melancholy mood. Lots to ponder with one choice phrase! Thanks for that.

I got so carried away with the brilliance of the flats that I forgot to tell you that I'm here from the Rally, and that my offering is here: ;-)

how true, some melodies are only saved for those who wrote them, and thus are special to your ears and hearts... i hope you melody plays on forever.
wishing you much love
(and thanks for reading mine!!)
