The Musical Craft


Music is the universal language that we can all appreciate. The following poem is an ode to music in its rawest form. Whether the sound is channeled through the instrument or the human voice, or a collaboration of the two, we all understand its message through our ears, our emotions and even through our entire body form when we dance or just simply move to the rhythm. This is truly the gift of music.

The Musical Craft

Each crystal clear vibration,

With its very own tune

All harmonizing together as it fills the room.

The atmosphere lights up with the tap of the

drumsticks on the golden plates,

And when the wood hits the blade edges, the

whole sound vibrates.

The trumpet blows,

Flowing with the musician’s emotion.

The sound penetrates my soul,

As I can hear the musician’s devotion.

Music has a life of its own,

Every good musician should know

When you put your heart into it, and let it all flow.

Daydreamer Too 5 years ago

I write to music, meditate to music. Music soothes the soul and without it the world would be such a dull place to be in and of course, there's music in nature's sounds too, a different kind maybe but, still as equally beautiful.

A very lovely piece of prose. Thanks for sharing
