“There, where music is born”

Where does music originate? In the soul of man, in the spirit of peoples, in the rhythm of time and nature, in the song of birds? What happens when music is born, right there in those places where it is born?

The topic “music”  is just a suggestion that can be poetically elaborated according to the inspiration and sensitivity of the individual authors!

Participants have to send only one unpublished, never prized poem (maximum 35 line).
Poems will be accepted in the mother tongue of the authors. A translation into English, Spanish, French or Italian is required.
