I wrote this poem from Nyla Alisia's photo poetry prompt on her facebook page...a photo of a guitar and this is the result of my poem. I hope you enjoy this poem!

A Guitar Treasure

This guitar has a heart to
talk to my heart.
The strings ring and resonate
as I dream of plucking them.
It is used and scarred from
nut to bridge yet I know
it is or can be put in tune
with the keys above.
I want to hold the neck
and the hollow body close
while I play it to a song I love.
I'm singing my best to
match the perfect sound coming
from the baffles too.
What I don't know is
how many names have
left their mark on you.

Garry Snyder Playing the Guitar

I am a backyard guitar player. I love to play the guitar and sing when I have the time. My loving wife, Noreen, loves to hear me and she is my number "1" fan.
It runs in the family. I hope you enjoy this!

The guitar, which I also love playing, is like a woman. It is to be handled gently and lovingly.:-)
Thanks for sharing, Garry.

I adore the sound of a guitar.
My husband plays, although not as often as I would like, and he to is a backyard guitarist.
