I'm amazed at the plethora of comments , thanks folks.
Jason and Mindy, thanks for adding to them with my offering as a trigger.
Devon, I do love a pun but they're generally frowned on, thanks!

Lisa, persevere but let it always be fun not a chore!

Martin i'll own up, I've no desire for the fray again. This was just a bit of frippery to be honest.

Don, it's annoying to think this works with hardly any effort, but that's often the way!

Hi David. Seeing that you have penetrated the mystery so well, I have to think this out - free of each other probably is right , as it was my master and servant at the same time, and was essential to earn a not always enjoyable living! But of course, we can't be free is we're wedded to an art and this can be one and give pleasure as we know. Frankly I didn't spend more than a second in writing it, so I'm perplexed about it's acceptance.

Thanks Cait for ascribing this as a poem. We are on the same wavelength.

Stu, I'll take that as a tick . Thanks indeed.

Hi Mark. That sounds like one of those easy to remember early lessons we used to take. There are quite a few to aid memory. Now I need all the help I can get!

Rachel, Mae, Sophie and Sognare thanks for the likes!


Don, now now! Can't have you getting inspired all over the place. Thanks for that.

Much to savour, thanks all!

In a band it doesn't
Matter what key is played
Provided when they're playing
The key each play's not strayed.....

Pianists see things in black and white
When they're seeking middle C,
But experience digital delight
Finding the key that sets them free.

Oh, I don't know Mindy, I like a bit of vagary,
I think it adds to the mystery.?

I wrote a 2 word, "Short Poem," called Tempus Fugit, and then someone told me about a French one word poem called, "Pousse."
Once I understood the context of, "Pousse," it because a real favourite of mine, so I say, yes Mindy, it's a poem.
