As the lights went down, the sequence began 
A series of well dressed puppets entered the stage 
Maestro raised his jewelled fingers and began 
Playing his violin as a haloed boy took center stage 

His lips were cupped with O’s and he sang of love 
Like he’d never been hurt before, such octaves 
Reached the conundrum eyes of a ballerina in love 
She skirted the scene with eros and octaves; 

Figure eights appeared, each puppet choired in 
As they danced round their peers, 16 little strings 
Moving in vertex, while 4 strings piped in,  
The dance of the marionettes kicked in, taut strings 

They played the scene, like orchestrated violins 
I watched mesmerized as they took on life and form 
I thought of Antonio Stradivari and his magic violins
And realized these puppets, were his new re-form 

Little puppets of vibrancy n’duplicity 
Born for entertainment and mimickry 
It is a dying art that we must treasure 
For they bring us so much pleasure!

    Hi Vien...your stringed puppets are full of life, giving pleasure to all who watch with fascination. #7 It's a pity, as you say, that this art is slowly dying out. Take care. // paul

    Well written and structured, I like the theme of this a lot. Quite surreal but beautiful and the puppet picture helped me visualise it more. :)
