One note soft, but strong
lilts into another, loud and long
a vibrational path gleaming
all the beauty of the souls’ song

Tied together by chords, like threads
slender strings all inter-webbed

Other voices soulfully weaving 
emotions sounded – joy, anger,
pleasure, dread, a shift in rhythm

As a new pattern emerges,
dancers leap with passions urge
weaving strings of life’s meaning

Lacy blends from funeral dirge
through ponderous celebration
into delights ministrations
