Silent Symphony



SHADOW SHOT

SILENT SYMPHONY


A book, a stand, a clarinet,
But no-one's there to use them yet.
Left to itself an instrument
Is quite inert, with no intent.
The book is paper, nothing more
Although it may contain a score.
Awareness of music is not in these;
Their purpose isn't symphonies.
Clarinet, book and stand all wait
To meet the player that seals their fate.

See tomorrow's blog for a rather cynical view of joy.

And who will be the player, I wonder. One of my favourite instruments besides the piano. I looks very inviting - and the shadows set it off nicely.

As usual, your words made me smile!

The artist has practiced so much, he/she knows their part cold. Yet the anticipation could consume them if not.So the musician has to play the part, and is ready - we hope the audience is as ready...

Happy SSS to you and the mysterious clarinet player.
Great post!

This was a very good shadow shot. And the poetry --- so clever!

Yes, sealing their fate, but the joy is all ours listening to their composition...cool shot!

so true, music is not music until its performed...

Pagan Sphinx said...

Very cool shot! Aptly titled and a nice poem to go with it. Perfectly creative in every way.
