Musical Intuition

There’s a sense of beauty

in the stairways between the notes

intervals of logic

to be ascended and descended

in ever-complex simplicity

pointe-shoe dance steps

across silken ladders

twinkling against each other

star-breezed and nimble-fingered

in increasing ecstasy

inscribed, dotted and crotcheted

leading upwards to heaven

 

Bach saw it, intuitively

as snowflakes know to dance,

star-patterned ballerinas

drifting in white tutus

blanketing cathedral spires

            or simply floating

            kissing the listening earth

            melting into us
