Fingers on Strings

And they move and move and move, each shift of chord and change of key, they move. Your fingers flit back and forth, twisting and wringing the weight of a melody from strings and strums. Your wrists writhe as they tangle with the notes that float from fingertips that exist in this box where you move, where I can see but can’t hear your music.


This was written as part of the Blogging U course. The prompt was fingers, the form was prose poetry, and the device was assonance. I really love this poem, the rhythm and sound quality works really well for me. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
