In the Turning

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 10:35 PM

in the time of turning,

among yesterday, tomorrow and

today, 

a tune, so low,

so humble.

an insect-song

so nimbly played.


a cricket's tune,

and set to text,

a wonderful bright

ghazal.


the words, most perfectly 

chosen,

the music,

fit perfectly to the words,


as if

by some great force 

of turning,

this whiligig of dance,

this hurdy-gurdy

momentary madness,

has wafted to earth,

and compelled by

warm rising notes,

the stars rush

earthward,

edging close to hear

this fantasy of dance

and music,

all in the Time

of 

Turning.
