Welcome back Clark,
I have always read your submissions and found you to be a wonderful writer. Glad you found some time to be back and intrigue us with more.
This poem I am sorry at first it "looked" too short. Then reading it through and over, I am hooked. Wonderful writing. I love how you put life into a musical instrument that is "felt" thus this poem is given deep understanding, very well written.
Verily written in true brevity to the max. Thank YOU for sharing your peaceful write and your beautiful mind....music is life.....etc.
