first violin–
the play of stage lights
on frayed horsehair

    Fine, well posed thought Alan!
    __My thought: so many things are needed to coax a violin into music… the bow crosses the strings, and the strings cross the bridge, and fingers choose the notes… who cannot be enthralled_?

    fingers choose
    as rosin dust sings their song
    a bow's time

    Oh, this really played on my heart strings, Alan! The juxtaposition of 'first' violin with the age-old props used in a school nativity really works.

    Great! I like the zoom aspect, very Slip Realism, a term I've coined.

    seasonal greetings,
