Three powers

of the ancient bards:

to rouse the listener to joyful laughter,

to desolate the listener to sorrowful tears,

to comfort the listener to peaceful sleep.

Three powers

of the harper.

Three powers

of the wordsmith.

Three powers

I seek.

    How about the power to make complete strangers fall in love with you? 😉 ❤

  6. The photo itself is comforting, exquisite- like the harp, and its player.

    • Thank you.
      It was an interesting shoot! This was not an exquisite moment, as we were in a forest on a hot day, dripping with perspiration and being tortured by mosquitoes! 🙂 But we got some beautiful harp shots in that forest!
