“Love is a friendship set to music.” ~E. Joseph Cossman

The violins strain, draining every last bit
of emotion that breathes within it.
Lifting, lilting, filling the Grand Hall with all
its virtuoso requires. It inspires
a crescendo of strings to bring
full passion into focus. A chorus
of woodwinds and reeds feeds its longing
belonging to the hearts who hold
the embers of true friendship aloft hoping
the open air will fan their smoldering sparks
into the flames of desire. The fires of love are
slow burning; self-sustaining. Non-consuming,
blooming into a conflagration, a symphony
composed in the promise of hearts; two single notes
that resonate to join in harmony – one accord. Stirring
in the fanfare of brass and appointed by tympani.
These flourishes become the soundtrack,
a friendship scored; composed in love!
