The Musician

The Musician

Today’s entry is in response to the weekly writing prompt at “Feral Little Secrets”. Poetry is not my strong suit but I’m brave enough to try! This poem was inspired my dear darling son who plays trombone in middle school band. He did so great last year and he says he’s going to keep at it!

So without further ado, I present to you…………..

The Musician

The air is charged with energy
Can you feel it?
The passion, the fury
The beauty, the wonder

Your heart beats faster
Harder, pounding now
Somewhere, someone
Asks a question

Are you ready?
The sounds become muffled
Until that moment
The sound erupts

From your instrument
The sound comes
Clear and full
You are making music, beautiful music

      Thanks so much Laura! I’m still kind of new at this blogging game and poetry usually scares me but I had a thought and I ran with it!!

        Poetry can be a terrifying thing. I am so glad you conquered that fear!

    Thanks Linda! With your love of music I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’m going to have to e-mail you some lyrics I’ve been working on for your song parodies. I can’t carry a tune in a washtub so it won’t be audio, just lyrics.
