Listening to sad guitar
While trying to concentrate on
Lecture review
I canít help but sneak a peak
Across my page
Just to catch your eye

My heart is singing for you
My heart is crying for you
My heart is swaying with the rhythm

This new music just formed
From unthinking fingers
Tickling cold strings
Stirring our tired attention
Calming tensing nerves
Notes slip in and soothe me

Your melody is quieting my mind
Your melody is easing my pain
Your melody is washing over me

"I like to think that the whole world is my friend"

dear supergranny,
i just finished reading your poem and wanted to let you know that i liked it. short, sweet, with some interesting images. plus, the poem is rather ambiguous: will they or won't they ever get together? it's something the reader can decide, isn't it?

Nice feel
This poem gave me a nice feeling - the kind I get almost anytime someone is plunking away on a guitar - the skill doesn't even need to be there for me. I like the sounds of it, regardless. It's very soothing.

My 16 year old just started guitar lessons this year - a dream he has kept secret for a long time. I love to hear his sounds in the house. Your poem brought me there.
