"...we are as the flute..." in Dedication to JARELL, a flute player...

We are as the flute, and the music in us is from thee;
we are as the mountain and the echo in us is from thee. RUMI

Breath... And I listen...
When breath becomes a sounding grace
Within it finds a sacred place
When breath becomes a lilting sublime
Within it finds the knowing divine
When breath becomes the life it gives
Within the spirit the splendor lives.
These sounding gestures a lilting grace
Hands, lips, with breath and love to place
Heard be this music and known be our heart
From which the blessings of breath shall not depart.
