Callused Fingers

Callused fingers press vibrating strings
drawing passion from a violin.
And with burnished wood snug to his cheek
the violinist plays from its heart.

Subtle vibes saturate my being
as crying strings elicit feelings.
And expounding on love’s betrayal
music stirs the imagination.

His bow hangs like a lingering kiss
savoring the taste of ecstasy.
And then with tears trickling down his cheek
he unleashes unbridled fervor.

Experiencing pangs of rapture
sound slips the bonds of reality.
And as each note penetrates my heart
it ignites flames of fire and passion.

What a passionate and charming read, Emile. The line "And then with tears trickling down his cheek" hit it out of the park for me. A definite FAVE for me.

This poetry shalt never reflect, just another fiddler. It is excellent and the only question that I have is, 'Do you play the marvelous violin?"
