In the spaces between the notes
you can hear the breath of her name
A song of mourning
A song of memory
A song of celebration
Fingers trail in arpeggios
up and down the keys
Playing in the spaces between the notes
with the breath of her name.

As evidenced by my name, I am a poet. I enjoyed the poem, along with the pic. Very appropriate that you have butterflies here, as they are symbol of transformation ala their cocoons. I imagine that's why you included them here. I like that the piano/organ is nestled in a tree, as trees are a symbol of growth :) Was the poem your own or someone else's?
