Eleven tons of pressure {pictured}

by A. Paige White

For strings that sing
Eleven tons of pressure
Songs with true notes


Author's Note:

          tons of pressure to tune a piano
           Miles of Mountain to make a hike

Negative Mounts like Dunes

I take at least three meanings: The tons of pressure in the player/singer/composer's life, on the strings of the guitar, and the fingers on those strings. And then there is the journey. Lovely poem and pictures.

as beautiful a metaphor as I've encountered in quite some time and with those beautiful and soulful blue mountains as backdrop makes it all the more visual and worthwhile
