Playing Her

She waits
Silent as death

Fingertips tickle her back to life
She sings my touch

…and when the stroking stops
She dies again
Silently waiting

Her song of resurrection
Is just one pluck of strings away

    I love the mental image of tickling guitar strings to life … yes that’s exactly what happens!

  4. Nice quaz! At first- I had an image of a woman asleep- stirring at fingers touch- but then the strings- and I realised 🙂 BUT great metaphor for both. What would we do without music eh?

    I rather enjoyed that it could be about a woman or a guitar. “song of resurrection” – love the phrase.
