Harp Levers and Strings

plucked strings vibrate
soft sweet notes drift upwardly
my soul sings along

  4. Karen I had to see the full instrument and it was breath taking in that light .. it couldn't have been displayed more perfectly !
    These shadows are unique : ) and beautiful in their own right .. such a contrast of hard metal to the over all warmth of the wood which seems to have a life of its own.
    Joy : )

  8. The sweet sound of a stringed instrument, a pleasure for the player and the audience. The wood is of a fine grain, the wire strings beautiful d even the hardware is quite attractive. A wonderful post!
