Emanating from the depths of the soul,
Recorded first in subconsciousness,
Released in its own time.
It may never hear the light of day,
In the unconscious it may ever stay,
But, it’s there forever.
What could trigger its release?
An event, a sound, a smell,
An inner voice saying, “release me, please let me go.”
Partnering with another,
Musicians on the same page,
Playing on the same stage,
Their lives intertwined,
Music their bonding agent,
Audience their catalyst,
Tone and rhythm, nuanced and joined,
Released together, then alone,
A tone poem.
