Brush and Key

The expression of sound with touch and stroke of hand
The embrace of a knowing in spirit's command
The call of the music the instrument to convey
Artist and musician, the muses at play.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

And to us it be known

hands in the creator's command
with brush beauty to behold
upon keys the heart be told.

6 October 2010

  1. Rose Marie, this is so lovely, so thoughtful. Your poetry flows from your heart and hands so sweetly like a precious mountain stream, clean and pure. Thank you for being you, a beautiful soul. With love, Serena Rose Emory.

  2. Serena Rose, When I heard your posted piano performance this very morning, I was joyed, and felt the totality of your beauty and its expressed artistry. It was as if you were now giving voice to your brush, holding to light and sound. And so ALL in celebration this day!

    Happy for you and happy for all blessed because of you,

    Rose Marie ♪♫•*¨*•.♥.•*¨*•♫♪
