Home Key

The instruments enter

one by one

with the percussion and tympani

welling up from underneath,

and the horror is balancing

back down to a gentle

note on the clarinet,

as the music slowly drives

towards its destination

and feelings of relief;

power and upliftment

serge’s through the body,

lifting  me off my seat, as

the orchestra finds the home key

in the coda of this musical outpouring,

and I know with the tears

running down my face,

that there is

nothing like live music

to stir the emotions

and make one feel wonderful.
