WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Percussive

The brass section stops and wildly stares

While the woodwinds simply cast their glare

The guitarist gets in that last shredding lick

Never realizing that without the percussive kick

Their music loses all of it’s sensational flavor

There’s really nothing much to enjoy and savor

Not without the form given by the percussive touch

The music becomes a little shapeless as such

There’s a concentrated focus in that time giving beat

That you won’t get with everyone tapping their feet

The drummer supplies the band’s rhythmic  heart beat

Giving the soloist her direction and the people from their seat

From sleigh bells to wood blocks to driving hip swiveling

It’s that percussive beat that is so completely soul revealing
