Making Music

taut strings twang
with distinct rings
perfect for two
to tango to it
making music
passion matching passion
until crescendos are peaked
then a slow passionate descent
leisurely at satiated speed
awash in passion’s dew
enjoying a duet
of silence
actions are so much more
satisfying and cherished
given to so few
a symphony
of perfectly matched
blessed duo until
a brief adieu
au revoir
à bientôt
