The art of conductivity
as the maestro explained,
is that the man with the baton

serves as a lightning rod,
earthing intuitions from god.
This is an entry for :devakarra's Short Poem Contest. The theme for entries is Music.

Congratulations on placing second in the contest! This was my favourite of all the entries; I love writing in metaphors and to see it done so perfectly and evocatively is a real treat. The power behind the word conductivity, the sharp and detailed contrast between lightning and earthing and then the subtle suggestions of a musical maestro being a messiah (although of course, there are many interpretations to this piece and this is what I love about it) stayed with me for a long time after reading. You have been featured in my latest journal and I hope it helps. :aww:

You're very kind to let me know how you felt about my poem. Your exploration of it is thorough and thoughtful. I'm impressed by the way you heard the music of the poem, and recognised its contribution to the overall meaning.

Thank you for spending so much time on the poem, and for your feature. :sun::heart:

I was just pondering on the opportunity to word-play with the word "conduct" earlier today. It's inspiring to see it done so well.
