The Cello

Yo Yo Ma - Miriam Schulman

The cello

etches its molten music

into the psyche

steals the soul

an aural apparition

passing through locked doors

string breezes

sing, burgeoning from chaos

resonance beckons


conjures vision timeless as

future memory

subsumed joy

Theia with shadows dancing

the light fantastic

cello truth

is baritone, the plumbed stave

sounds close melody
