I see the violist's eyes
Light up
Like a flame.

The corners of his mouth
Twitching up
As every note came.

I see his calloused hands
Moving up & down
In time with every rhythm
& in time with every sound.

The sound of his voice
Filling the air
Begins another round
For everyone to hear.

I see his surprise
As my voice joins his
To create a sound so unique
That it's never been.

The duet of two people
Is precious & dear
Rare to exist
But beautiful to hear.

I wrote this after watching my boyfriend play his viola. We often sing together and while he was playing he made me want to hum or sing along. It was beautiful.

I really loved this poem.  You did a great job portraying a violinist's passion for his music. I play the viola and I thought it was simply beautiful. Amazing job.

Mika, that was beautiful. I think you'll be going places with your poems. I used to love to write poems when I was younger.
