    The Way I Hear

     

    I listen to a piece of music for the first time by an unknown composer. I do not know the name of the piece, when or where it was made, nor the instruments used. I respond to the music according to my taste, what I have heard in the past, and through my interest and love of music.

    Although music may be heard without language or broader context, it is often enriched by these.

    Between The Sheets of Sleep Awake

    I touch the spike of sound lay bare, where note and silence mingle clear, the beat of heart, my start and end, awake the journey whole and near.
