Resonance November 9, 2015

Precise pitch, tuning,
and time
Yes, these are the
basics that maketh
a song
but bare minimum components
leave the mouth dry
and the listener unfulfilled.

To truly create music,
flavorful and full bodied,
you must be the river
shaping a canyon
molding the clay to
leave behind something
that resonates

(I recommend
gentle hands to pull
the strings
and warm breath
to make the sound
bloom)

The bard knows this
recipe well.
Boots off, he
keeps a foot on the
floor
to stay grounded

turning memory to music
taste, smell, and touch
translated wordlessly
filling my belly
and heart

How did you know
the harmony of my
past?

inspired by a music filled evening, November 7th 2015, performed by Damon Buxton

One of the weird things about me is that I’m a lot less into music than almost everybody else. But I still really liked this poem :)
