Estas Tonne – Prose – Guitar



wait… 🙂

DVerse – The Poet’s Pub was on Unplugged. I wrote this Friday night – so thought I would pop it in – thank you.

Estas is plugged but into an amplifier

starts to play at 56 seconds  ..please read on

music sieved
through the strings
sugar on a cake
remove all impurities
eats my soul
gently, rhythmically
heart strums
sounds rise
soaring beyond normalcy

honesty in essence
you play
for love
strum strum
the guitar
loud against the voices
you may not hear

feel the strings
the heart beat that it owns
slowly counting down
the strings are you
you are the strings
play on

slide your fingers
bringing it to life
the master of cords
as people watch
you play
play on
the wood is you
you are the wood

I see it in your eyes
within your soul
strum, play
beads on wrists
your heart
circling touching
ears that listen
with incense
burning my heart

in the end
they walk away
troubles cast aside
just…just for one sweet
moment you held them
as you played
and felt
and gave
your heart was on
the line

Estas Tonne born in Russia.

  1. this is gorgeous…and you are a mind reader as well….our theme on saturday is unplugged…ha…shh dont tell anyone…smiles…play the beads on your wrist…and its amazing how a bit of music can sooth the troubles too….

    • 😦 damn I can’t use it though…can I? Thank you, you are so sweet in your comments of my writing, a different ‘style’ to many that I read on DVerse (I know we are all different) would like to accomplish more of a ‘flow’ – but with support and a little elbow grease, I will eventually. Thank you Brian for reading once again. 🙂

  2. Wow, that is some guitar playing….and pretty cool the way he has the incense burning. And you have definitely brought his music to life with your words. His playing does hypnotize, I see that.

    Hmmm, I don’t see the ‘cute’ myself, LOL. Good musician, lots of heart and soul…but…. I know there are different strokes for different folks. Smiles.

    • 🙂 Mary you make me smile – I did remove the cute comment now in case people thought me slightly weird in my taste 🙂 I happened to pop in acoustic guitar and I found him, he really is quite brilliant. Appreciate your kindness and reading – thank you.

  3. ah – love his guitar playing… really touching and no wonder how much it moved you…i love how much a street musician can change the mood of the place and the people who listen to him

    • Thanks Claudia – yes I found him rather brilliant – the wonders of youtube.. 🙂 Yes the street musician to the writer – listening to music sends us to a different place. Appreciate the read C.

  4. It is uncanny how we wrote of the same theme and use the word sieve, ha ~

    Love this part best:

    the wood is you
    you are the wood

    Magical sounds, with the ending, the heart on the line ~

  5. Inspiring read! I love Estas Tonne’s music but couldn’t bring myself up to the point of synchronizing my writing with his strings.. U did it perfectly well for his music lover writer fans! (y)
