Love in a Minor Key

My response to dVerse Poets Pub 5 Year Celebration Poetry and Painting Embrace: We Can’t Forget Claudia Schoenfeld

In part 2 of the 5th anniversary celebration Victoria chatted with Claudia Schoenfeld, co-founder of the dVerse poetry community. I found it hard to choose one of Claudia’s paintings for inspiration, but finally went for the piano in the following sevenling with the theme of music.

Love in a Minor Key

Artist: Claudia Schoenfeld
Used with Permission


She was a natural in between the sharps and flats

When they fell in love in a minor key

To the haunting notes of a Brahms rhapsody.


He was the accomplished cellist in a string quartet,

Bowing his strings perfectly,

While his left hand vibrato moved her ardently.


Their instruments united in a harmonious duet.

  1. Lovely when two artists can come together and make sweet music. the left handed vibrato made me chuckle a bit. A melodeous love there…would be wonderful to hear their mixed music as i imagine their relationship would come through in the music…
