Yes, where are all the other musicians?
I apologize for not replying sooner, having been caught up with my own posting issues and forgetting momentarily the vital need to support the writing of fellow posters. Your poem is very well written and touches the heart, which is the main thing, of course. I am honored but not feeling so worthy of mention in your OP. I'm a pianist and music teacher, yet I, too, need to broaden my scope. I shall do so as of now because of this thread.
Stick with it, Tallon. Ten years of writing here has shown me the highs and lows of interest in poetry (considering who's on board at any given time). As others have supported and encouraged me over the years, I ask you to keep writing, keep posting, keep honing your craft.
Blessings and peace . . .
