Apr 20, 2015 - Violin. She sleeps in her rose wood bed, under a blanket of velvet red; old and alone and forgotten, she dreams of the love she once had. Once again she recalls his caress on the curve of her hips and her breast as he moved his bow on the strings of her soul, playing her sound 'til his passion was spent.

Michael Jordan - 2008 - ‎Poetry

Elaine George wrote the most beautiful poem I have ever read. It's titled “Violin” and it is a true masterpiece. There are many others who have touched my heart to many to list them all individually and I apologize to them for that but on the poetry soup site just about any and all have held me in their prayers and hearts.

.                                              She sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                   old and alone and forgotten,
                                           she dreams of the love she once had.
                                              Once again she recalls his caress
                                                      on the curve of her hips
                                                                and her breast
                                                         as he moved his bow
                                                      on the strings of her soul,
                                                             playing her sound
                                                    'til his passion was spent.
                                                                        ~~~
                                           They traveled the whole world over,
                                                      to every city and town;
                                              the maestro, his bow and violin,
                                                 bringing each curtain down.
                                                                        ~~~
                                               He died in a cry of sweet refrain,
                                               clutching her strings to his heart; 
                                            as he fell to the floor in a final encore,
                                                       tearing her world apart.
                                                                        ~~~ 
                                           So she sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                         her strings still filled 
                                                    with the song of her soul,
                                                        etched by the maestro
                                                               that loved her
                                                               so long ago!

                                                                    ~~~~~

I suppose an instrument, really DOES have a relationship with the musician, as much as the musician does with the instrument. Some musicians I know, will not allow anyone else to handle their instrument. Surely, you were God's Instrument, when you wrote this. This is a masterpiece!

Personification is fun. One of my first poems on the internet went into an anthology that got published. I was amazed and tickled by that.
