To Eric Whitacre with gratitude
The beauty of dissonance,
in itself…and resolving,
the strength of moving to
and off of and onward,
continuing the run, each note
clear and strong, not shy away from
let all notes be possible together
in the greater scheme of things.
Regardless of what was taught
about what was right or right rules once
in the world as it existed then.
To let become and bloom
from sheer joy of breath and sound
as if the world is being
created all over again…
as indeed it is…
from pure vibration.
