SOME KINDS OF MUSIC (cinquain 3 -syllabled)

a poem by Jacinta Ramayah, Malaysia - poetry writer, author, poet

Trumpets,
throats stretching bout,
cheeks bulging, muscle clout,
puckered lips, blowing in and out,
Music!

Guitars,
strings vibratin’,
blues, country, rockin’ scene,
fingers, thumbs, pluckin’ and strummin’
Music!

Organs,
tango, jazzy,
make your choice, ranging free,
sounds that blend simultaneously
Music!

Cymbals,
slide, scrape, clash, crash,
up and down, rhythmic hands,
thin, steely round plates, swishing bands,
Music!

Pianos,
strings strike keyboards,
hammers hit diverse chords,
incredible pitch echoes loud,
Music!

Bugles,
keys few, pitch small,
taps - announcing death toll,
military dawn wake-up call,
Music!
