When Fingers Find Guitar's Strings

When Fingers Find Guitar's Strings

A Poem by BlakPrince

love is music, let's play


When fingers find guitar's strings,

both adjust to desire's wish,

for the connection it brings

uplifts five senses to sixth.

Guitar echoes a sweet moan,

with fingers' delicate strokes,

in a slow smooth rise in tone,

as the climax of pure notes

lead both to sway to love's tune

back and forth just like the winds

in sync with flowers, sun and June-

when fingers find guitar's strings!

Love the metaphor and musicality in this poem. Love the interpretation of the experience of fingers first finding guitar strings as lovers first touching each other- so on-point. Beautiful language, form, flow, rhythm and rhyme. Elegantly and lyrically passionate. Great write.

I love this poem. I do play a bit of acoustic guitar and you truly captured that ultimate feeling when you become one with those strings creating that musical vibration. It really is an addictive, soulful experience.

"Guitar echoes a sweet moan,
with fingers' delicate strokes,
in a slow smooth rise in tone,
as the climax of pure notes"

Excellently penned.
