here in this afternoon 
of undulating suspensions
harmony melody
blended into the gray light of
the window listening 
to the sure way of slow strong hands
the texture of soft touch
the rhythm of tones the stream of
close piano voices
feel the music in your hands feel
it singing in your chest
here in the hot afternoon of
clear water sonatas
wait for the truth revealed wait for
longing fulfilled time is
silenced dreams are borne upon the
legato of the hours

the water leaps past forgotten stones
disappearing down below flowing
back to the heart of rock bubbling out
again in clear chattering springs on
and on forever until the world
blinks out into darkness and we are
left by the river’s edge wondering
at the gurgling songs of birds in trees
at the covering green of thin reeds
at a blue sky that opens to life
and an opaque death a dark dull knife
