Poem: Deep Notes, Quick Pace


The despairing beauty of the music
Causes us to lament life as we live it.

The capture and loss of the moment
—The bittersweet quality
Of these fleeting days—
Deepen the significance of what is felt.

The fragility of time
—Strong one moment,
Fading the next—
Is the seduction
Of the human experience.

The momentary ripeness of this flesh,
The short space of this breath,
Quickly withered,
The beauty is missed
If not lived.

Each note
Sweet and somber
Has its harmony.
This movement
Rushes so quickly
Unto silence.
Fall backward
Into the tide.
Be carried away.
