Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Brother Ollie,The passion is complete and that brings the most fulfillment. The rest is simply exploring noteworthy possibilities; which in time might even bring new energy to the sound:)Happy Sunday,Eileen:)
It's that 100% that counts.
I can hear the passion in those notes!
smiles...passion covers many of those missed notes....i love to see an artist lost in their work...be it music or art....seeing that passion in action is pretty amazing...
smiles, already read this one...happy sunday to you though monk...
Each note has its own story to sing
Passionate is a word that comes to my mind. Truly too. Admire your style. :)
I definitely understand this, Ollie. It is the same thing with my singing. LOL. Except the ratio might be 50 - 50!
pentatonics are great to let loose on... this poem bags a 100% and a 100% methinks.
I can hear the music reverberating through my soul... beautiful!
My husband is a guitarist. I love this!
I played lead in a local rock band in my youth. The passion IS the key. Nice one.
I can relate. I am not too good with guitar, still caught up in the learning phase. But when, out of the blue, I hit a chord right, the sense of achievement I feel is incredible. I enjoyed reading this. :)
While I am not a musician myself I can feel your passion, cool and beautifully written piece
i love the music, and have no talent for playing it...I guess someone has to be the audience
You would not want to hear the froggy caterwauling that passes for singing at my house these days. But I enjoy it anyway. Hee hee.
The mantra of the musician who pours himself into his craft. Short and sweet and mindful.

I just love 'tired monk method' I think my life plays out using that method too! Your poems are brief but always pack a punch! :)Twirling
Ollie, the passion is all that counts. I tend to sing a bit flat, swoop in under the notes, the whole blues thing. But it's the attitude that puts it over every time. Love hearing about your music! Peace, Amy
Loved the end amidst all the terchicalities
