Space in music is time,
time passing silently.

A rest in music is a bridge
between riverbanks of melody.

Here, in the heart of this song,
here, in this space of time,

here, we've come
to the shore of a sea.

Go on singing your song
silently within yourself

like a bridge at night,
yearning, empty, ready to bear,

till your music begins
singing in the waking world,

till it starts again
on the other shore.


I make my way
               home in the dark,
dancing the stars
               through the treetops,

It is clear.  It is
               worth a lifetime
of dancing to get
               this dance right.

Some may say
               these are awkward
steps, just stumbling,
               tripping and falling....

But I keep one foot
               in my everyday life,
the other in dreams--
               and I dance.

Lazlo Slomovits, Ann Arbor
