One Minute In Time

June 20, 2011
Mr.Moore standing tall
helping others
the overpowering sound
of talking
squeaking clarinets
the smell of lunch
in the
creak go the
the cold touch of
on my fingers as
I lift my flute
to my mouth
I've made my first
noise on my flute
at !:30 p.m.
who did that?
me, I squeak
Good job?
I changed in that one minute

free verse poetry--very well done! i like how you incorperate dialoge as well. i remember the moment you write of from when i was in sixthgrade band. i played the oboe, so my first sounds sounded like a dog worrying one of those sueaky duck toys, but i was surrounded by flutes for most of the time so i still got to enjoy that wonderful instrument.

I love your style with poetry! I've always wanted to play the flute, but I never got around to it. Anyway, this seems really realistic, and I can imagine every detail. I love it :)

not to play favorites or anything, but the saxophone is amazing ;) haha, a lot of my friends play the flute, so that's a good instrument, too! i'm re-learning how to play the clarinet and also how to play the trumpet this year, too.

yeah, i get what you mean. i'm a junior, and it took my parents a long time to realize that i actually am pretty serious about music. they only let me start band because we have instruments. i play my two uncles' tenors, my great grandfather had a silver clarinet i'm using, and my brother played the trumpet for a few years and is giving up (which we all expected) so i get the trumpet now. i'm sure your parents will understand, though! and if it comes down to it, you can always self-teach yoursel...

i'm not sure about your high school, but i go to a pretty small one, and there are still a lot more options at that level. i know my friend (who plays the alto sax) is interested in drum corps stuff, and that's a LOT of brass (i'm no expert, but i'm pretty sure there aren't any saxophones in drum corps) so she's learning how to play the mellophone (the marching french horn, pretty much) and she's using the school's. two friends of mine who play flute had to learn a secondary instrument this past...
