listen, watch


she says listen

   and watch how the chords 


naturally follow one another

   her hands flow


along the fretboard and music follows 




   the structure


which worried me

   no longer does, the parts become one




i am reminded of a sunset

   watched by newton, watched by blake


of a lake frequented by fisherman during the day

   seen by moonlight at night




i will never understand the whole

   of anything


but she brings me closer

   by example

I like this my friend, very, very much. Oh if I could only write better comments. I love the humble acceptance of not understanding the whole.

This moves me for reasons I can't quite describe. Well done.
