Theme: Music

Strings and Bow

violin poised on the shoulder
chin resting gently
the delicate ribbon on the bow
barely touching the strings
stirring a tiny whisper
taking strength, rising
building up, pouring out
strong dainty tunes
overflowing, filling gaps...
seducing all senses,
spilling and spreading
condensed pain,
seeping through to the surface
in a trance of its own,
lost in the connection
of the bow, the ribbon, the strings...
at the aching heart...the agonising soul...
