I wrote this short poem after an exquisite chamber music concert in Tunisia ... A blend of Bach, Vivaldi, Saint-Saens and Gardel begot these lines ~

Upon a Melody and a Gaze ~

The touch of a string

The birth of a note

A sigh ..

With the sway of his bow

You forthwith know

How it feels to fly ..

A lingering haze, a helpless smile,

My heart and I

Blissfully drunk

Deliciously sunk

In the blink of an eye

Bitter-sweet gasps

Blithe waltz in Adagio

The heart cries “Oh My!”

Notes faint and die

The whole world shrunk

With a look of his eye …
