[POEM] How can I savor? 

What is a cousin? What is a neighbor? 

How can I savor? This life? 

 

On account of details . And fragmentation 

We stymie & dampen . Our own elation 

 

“Not I” says the tiger . Though so few we may be 

I swear to live true . And vow to live free 

 

According to the laws . Of nature and my heart 

Oh wilderness, oh purity ! How precious thou art!

[POEM] "The Real Music" 

Exploding  . Out of me . Like a sunbeam . A starburst . Of flavorful joy . To find expression . For the many . Inexpressible . Aspects of life 

Confiding . In each listener . For a moment . Heart to heart . From fingers to ears . Transmuted . Transformed 

I’m grateful . For this gift . How can I give voice . To this calling . To play, to create . To BE awesome??? 

How can I play . The Real Music?
