In Dedication to Margarita Rovenskaya

A Sunday afternoon at the Quincy Hall of the Union Arts Center,  Sparkill, New York, as the sun begins its setting sojourn, golden leaves, of the tree seen from the windows above,  hold to the light and the splendor of the sounding piano played by Margarita Rovenskaya. I listened, the light, the sound, became ONE, as joy made itself known...

Light and Sound

Golden hues in a lambent sky
Golden leaves of the towering tree
The winds and the lilting grace of the piano sounding
Such be this alchemic joy
Feel I the splendor of the dance of light and sound
This passion within each key played
Delicate and bold a lyrical majesty
Be this the heart and hand in Spirit's calling command
The breath, the pause in surrender sublime
Such be these treasures of heart
In Sunday's music embrace
Time bears its gift divine.
