Day 117(2 days late): Poem 2

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

It’s been quite a while since I wrote my last poem, and I would like to include more writing in this 36 project, although it’s clearly not my forte. This poem is about a pianist’s fingers, because I always am fascinated with watching the way musicians fingers can move across the keys. They always look so effortless, which I, of course, know isn’t true, but I’m always amazed at how much emotion and beauty can come from fingers.

Digital

graceful fingers

dance across their stage

of snow and coal tinted keys.

each digit plays it’s role

in the intricate ballet

with an air of ease that

masks innumerable rehearsals.

all emotion lies in those

calloused yet delicate tips

that can change the mood

with a slightly heavier hand.

they feel every cool key

and know each smooth surface

like their most intimate friends.

friends whose voices mingle

in melodious splendor

with unwavering focus

for their specific role.

these dancers bring color

to their otherwise motionless

and monochromatic stage

and work unitedly

to perform their ballet

as one being

with one purpose.

a musician

in concert.

Anna Grace Smith
