“The Conductor” – Poem

Note: Remember that great poem that my student Edward Lim wrote about my photo, “Midnight Dining“? Well he is at it again and this poem that he wrote is on one of my favorite photos, “The Conductor.” Show him some love and leave a comment below!

"The Conductor" - Downtown Los Angeles

Eyes blind in concentration,
Hands perched in the air,
The barren floor, waiting,
Instruments ready.

Hand and baton descends
Liquid notes leaps up,
Graceful with rhythm,
A grand Forté.

From the ground,
The baton leads a river
A gossamer cascade
Glistening gold

A dance of light,
Symphony of water
In harmonious key
The midnight waltz
