Simply Poetry


Her dexterity on

the beautiful


classical guitar


Long slender fingers

skilfully picking and plucking

sliding up and down

the mellow-tuned instrument


Captivating music

enthralling enthusiastic audience

opening night

Arts festival


Young and talented

solo artiste



La Paloma to Granada

Leyenda to Night Serenade

on her Spanish guitar


Bravo! Bravo!

standing ovation

she makes the guitar sing!
