The Importance of the Rest

Notes held captive
In sheet music bars
Are liberated
By the jazz man’s sax,
Audible bubbles
Floating through the ether,
Landing in our souls,
The spaces between
Just as powerful
As the notes themselves.

I have never heard of an audible bubble but then I guess when one thinks about it the thought bubbles in a comic is almost the same.

I really like the poem and makes me almost feel the music.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us for this weeks Theme Thursday.

God bless.
