Harmony

Harmony

A Poem by gabiaimee
"

Hint: It's an acrostic

"
The first time it sunk in: the
Realization that we belong to each other
Absorbed all at once just like how
Voices from a myriad of people fit suddenly
Into an eight part harmony until
Silence overtakes and ends the composition.

Yes girl! You captured that "Aha!' moment in six lines! That takes a lot of guts, and so much talent. The bleakness of the ending too...could it be the silence of a breakup, or just the relief in the quiet moments after the epiphany? I feel like you could interpret it either way, which is something I love about your work. It can generate discussion. So fascinating! Love it!

I really enjoyed this piece, I like how you kept it short and sweet, yet your words spoke volumes. The theme of the poem was perfectly executed, well done.

What a poignant piece.

Brief, but without wasting a breath it cuts to the core of one's own emotions.

Great write.

So much in these few words.....:) As a composer, (unknown, unpublished, just for myself...lol) I know the feeling of when music fits, and when it fits well. When the lives of loved ones also fit, it can be, well, music to our ears. The ending, for me, is ambiguous, though. Some people, even though they had music in the beginning, stop singing, even though they stay together. If the composition really ends, does that not imply that the belonging together also ended? The irony in the title is also piercing. Harmony can not be, if they are not together.

In the end, what sounds good, is not always good, despite what our ears, and everyone opinions tell us. Masterfully composed :)

the penny drops.

i like it a lot, think it's good.. but don't like the last word . it don't seem to fit . it stumbles and that's not what the poem is about, hey. try a synonym for 'composition' with fewer syllables

Lovely piece dear,

Voices from a myriad of people fit suddenly
Into an eight part harmony until
Silence overtakes and ends the composition.
