Like everything about this.
The quote.
The musical allusions/theme
And the vid.

I played violin once upon a time, and am somewhat of a poet, so it's a two-for-one special for me lol

I like the idea of "ear to eye"

Poets are perhaps the most lyrical of all writers, and notes do in fact take shape within us.

I also like how it ends. "Albeit"

There's just a suddenness about it, yet, somewhat puzzling :P

Good stuff. Glad u sent it my way.

Thank you very much KTBradley :)
I like how you mentioned the many different features of the violin...such multiplicities are always a source of inspiration for all poets.

Thank you wordman :)
I think every poet has to be obsessed to write well of anything real
its that passion that is insatiable that releases the words
like playing that violin
looks calm
but is intense
i know keeping up with the strings is no easy job

Bravo !!!

SoloSolace, I really appreciate your kind thoughts, thank you :)
Don't dare say the irony was not intended. A superbly structured poem called 'Unstructured'. And quite a lovely one at that. Remarkable.

Ken, thank you very much :)
You certainly have a way with words. I read this three times and sat for a moment in amazement that every line is perfect. You can see beauty in just about everything/anything. Thanks for penning this. It actually inspired me to do some poem writing of my own!

Thank you Cassie, I appreciate your thoughts :)
Music and poetry both rise from the most creative, most lyrical and stirring places in the soul. Little wonder then that an amazing poet is captivated by the strings of one of the most beautiful of musical instruments there exist. I appreciate this poem so much.
