Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
This month, our Poetry Princess challenge was to write a poem with an anaphora–a repeated, open-ended phrase.
Recently, Randy and I attended a concert by Lucia Micarelli, a wonderful violinist. (We saw her years ago performing with Jethro Tull.) Although I played violin briefly as a child, y’all know how I feel about wordless music. So, as I usually do at orchestral concerts, I jotted in a tiny notebook. In the dark. Barely legibly. But I wrote notes about the images that Lucia’s violin and fiddle playing brought to mind. She played such a great variety of pieces, with such passion, and talked just a bit about them in between, that her music conjured up many different scenes to me. I chose to focus on just three.
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
