Scattered in the big city
Working hard to reach their goals
The invisible, the unknown
Hearts came together
Dreams came true
Those unheard voices
Into the night
He clings to the hope
That his fingers will find
A new sound upon the strings
That will refresh his weary soul
To arise from the blue funk of woe
And dance to the music of his heart
( Portrait Prompt from @poetryportrait on Twitter )
Unique from all the rest
In the hands of its creator
It has a soft voice all its own
That warms the heart and soothes the soul
A handcrafted Banjo named “Mary”
This poem is dedicated to a hand-crafted Banjo named “Mary” that was created by “Doc” Huff.
On this ” Buy a Musical Instrument Day” I would like to pay tribute to a very talented man and his family who hand crafts Banjos. “Doc” Huff of Doc’s Banjos in Dallas, OR creates unique Banjos from scratch using wood from the trees on his property. Doc builds these beautiful musical instruments by hand in his small log cabin workshop ( which he also built). Doc designs and cuts the wood, dyes the skins and adds special strings to create a one of a kind Banjo that is not only beautiful to look at but also beautiful to listen to. Doc’s wife Florisell and his three children also help with the crafting business and his daughter evens chooses a name for each Banjo created.
If you are looking to purchase a Banjo or are just interested in Banjo making I invite you to visit Doc’s Banjos online or in person. It will be an experience you will surely enjoy.
