Lonely Fiddle

A lonely fiddle, its strings once taut tense and stretched, waiting to be tuned and played. The limp horsehair bow, longs to be tightened and drawn in sweet reverberations. From the poem "Strings" posted Jan 27, 2018 for Greg's Arbitrium Divisa contest

Enjoyed reading Craig. It would be nice to bring it back to life, bring it out of retirement. Congratulations on your win.

Craig, congratulations on your top placement. In my closet is a lonely fiddle. Perhaps I will get it out and play again.

Sam, many of us have lonely instruments we once played, my wife's is a violin, mine is an accordion, others have out of tune pianos, but all have memories/wishes/melodies still left within them or us. many of those about a Mom that encouraged us to learn them------thanks for all of the above.....

Love this Craig.. I can't help reading more into this than musical instruments but it might just be me over thinking things :)

What it's all about Gary...and those instruments are extensions of us - are personifications of emotions/memories for sure

Thanks Sandy, more for fun than the competition even though I'm otherwise fiercely competitive.
