The Violinist


“Violin” by Dakkan(deviantart)

Thin fingers, agile, moving in intricate

Fashions across the darkwood surface, its

Artful motion, with expertise manipulating the

Bow in hand and the strings stretched taut in

Various acute manners, producing a melody

At times soothing, at times perky, now and

Then a composition for melancholy and

Occasionally one for the eyes to close.


Calling with caress, all who hear it, casting its charm,

Permeating spheres of tension, emanating

Carefully arranged pitches and notations to

Mesmerize the auditory senses. The violinist

Stands there, postured, eyelids shut, hands in motion

To produce sounds as beautiful as waves of the ocean.
