Fine Tuning

Do we ever (let’s just think about this)

truly understand one another or are we

always just a half step off key however

unknowingly a shade sharp a little flat

missing a beat or two maybe a whole bar

perhaps even changing from

three four to four four and while we’re at it

putting our own fine tuning to dynamics

(maybe a crescendo just there)

altering the tempo to suit the mood

adding an introduction perhaps a coda

writing variations on the theme or

what the heck changing the theme itself

ultimately hearing a tune that is no longer

the other’s but fully our own.

  1. I think we do that a lot in all of those variations from totally changing the song to little grace notes. And of course others are doing it to us. Makes for interesting music doesn’t it?
