Music is My Life

Life…..Music…..Life….Music…..Life
Life Music….Music(al) Life
Music is Life
Life is Music

The music flowed from him
Rhythmically, effortlessly….
It poured out of him with the air from his body
His fingers conducted the air through the instrument…

And the sound that came out was
captivating,
mesmerizing,
irresistible,
beautiful,
Life-affirming

He was a phenom, a master of his craft
Or had his craft mastered him….

To the player, it was the perfect symbiosis
It was what it had to be
the only thing that it could be!

To the listener, bathed in the music,
it mattered not!

I wrote this poem in collaboration with Angela L Walker to accompany her collage called A Gifted Man’s Obsession

A writer and engineer… what a combination!
