The love of music .......is still love.

She........sits in the dieing sunlight of
summer where shadows grow on flowered wallpaper
sips a glass of wine
And then braces the violin against ivory
flesh on her bare shoulder
the strap of her dress slides
down her shoulder
Her eyes go instantly to a far away place
and then close
she's ready.......
she becomes one with the night
and her journey begins

He........sits quietly outside his balcony
one house away
in the last sunlight not wanting
to miss the sun setting
as he has done for years
He thinks of memories past
and those to come.....
quietly waiting

And just when the journey of the sun
touches the leaves and treeline across the
valley ......she picks up
the bow and lays it
quiety on the strings
her green eye's open and
look down at her fingers ........
closing again and leans her cheek against
the polished body of her love

He......sips on a beer and leans back in
the padded wooden lawn chain
and rests his head on the pillow
where he will sleep
.......eventually.... well into the
darkness and as his mind
begins to reach for a last
straw
The music begins..........
and there is new love born
Her gifted fingers and
his waiting ears

Ahorseback, are you dreaming again?

"The polished body of her love", that original and classic.
