BP 5: A Poem Inspired by an Empty Cottage Through Musical Description

This poem was written by Michael Reittinger inspired by this old abandoned cottage in Boarhills, Scotland.  This picture is so interesting because of the difference in the clouds on the left and right.  He does great comparing this scene to jazz and the emotion see in the cottage.

A space of value with sweet toned skies
Skies that resemble jazz like feeling
A space of many textures with abnormal emotion
Landscape showing rhythm with beats so cool
A beautiful antique structure showing loneliness and heartache  
Loneliness of the trumpets overpowering the rest of the jazz ensemble
Layers stacked upon layers giving overlooking harmony
A tempo so soft and peace
LOOK! What can you hear?
