    From @Pandora and her the baroque challenge I got
    "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" by J.S. Bach
    It inspired me to use the melody to write this

    Swish, zziing, swish, zziing. Zzziiiing

    Step, step, step, step
    Halting before his opponent, his master.
    Standing
    A bow
    A smile
    Holding his lightsaber and igniting it

    Step, step, step, step
    Swish
    Szing
    Run, twirl, run

    A jump
    Using the obstacles in the training salle
    Flying

    =D= Loved that, how the movement and sounds of the lightsaber spar were captured!

    Ooh, neat idea—this is almost like a poem! And I do see how the duel fits with the piece, especially the opening Toccata with its back-and-forth dialogue between high and low registers (which somehow feels especially appropriate for Obi-Wan and Anakin, given the opposite sides of the Force they represent). Very neat and creative idea for the prompt, and cool bridging of genres! =D=

    I have to admit I wouldn't have thought of writing a lightsaber duel in poetic form to this piece--but now that you have, I can only look on in awe and respect. Well played indeed. The back and forth between Anakin and Obi-Wan--and I can tell just who is talking, especially with the "It's frustrating/It's boring" exchange--flows well with the music. And given their personalities (Anakin's especially) nothing short of Bach would do for their sparring session soundtrack.

    And then the last lines are just perfect, as they lower their sabers and agree to have a drink. As someone on tumblr might say, "That is so them."

    Thanks so much for writing this for my challenge!

    the well known music by Bach inspired me
    That's Bach for me. Music with dark and light contrasting
    And thank you for giving me this beautiful piece of music of a composer that's one of my favorites since I was four year old

    Fascinating approach to it. I love Bach and tension.
