From Obscurity To Clarity


A composition to be read,
Is not much different...
When it is heard to hear,
Or felt to feel to comprehend...
Its intent when completed to finish,
With a getting of an attention...
To either critique or consent to its content.

The position of the composer still remains to select,
An approach that is best effective...
That will bring from obscurity to clarity,
A 'vision' appreciated and easily detected...
By those with mindsets prepared to digest,
What it is the composer's composition might suggest...
With words expressed or notes placed never to forget.

A composition to be read,
Is not much different...
When it is heard to hear,
Or felt to feel to comprehend...
Its intent when completed to finish,
With a getting of an attention...
To either critique or consent to its content.

And to do with a taking what has been done for granted.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
