stillness, time and music

one body stands,
collecting time into stillness.

the heart of stillness
blesses time in the body
with feeling.

the blessed body,
arms raised to the assemblage,
offers time and feeling,
a gift
granting freedom
and time
to express
each individual talent
as concerted sound:

a joyful noise
that is both
gift and offering,
time and again.
