A Performance

Silks swish
heels click
voices murmur

Sounds settle

Lights dim
a hush falls
pure notes swell
into the total silence
rise and fall

The heart soars
the body thrills
as the bow
caresses strings
evoking emotions
resonating in the soul

The hall fills
with dulcet strains
ascending to a
pinnacle of perfection

Then all falls quiet
before applause
collides with the rafters

And the music
continues to play
