in the moment between
the orchestra tuning and
the curtain going up
lies a space big enough
to hold our expectations
in the last moment before
the wheels touchdown
and grab the runway
as we catch our breath
and let go of our fear
in that one moment before
beginning — when we know
what’s coming but not here
yet – that one moment
full of waiting room before
we climb up on a time
and the moment is gone
along with our memory of it
until the next time the air stills
and we free fall in possibility
You’ve caught it perfectly – that moment when the “air stills…”
Best of luck in the new job.
Oh wonderful – especially the “free fall” feeling. Congratulations on your new job, Milton. I’m confident you’ll do great.
I could really identify with this one – that leap of faith; believing there will be no regret.
This is fabulous – the anticipation before a big moment and the “free fall in possibility.” Well done, you!
Very nice… I like how I can interpret this line in two ways.
“we climb up on a time”
..And yet we keep on searching for that moment.
I interpreted it this way…
You captured it, exactly.
Oh yes, I know that space…you describe it so well…
A perfect description of that anticipation before you try anything for the first time or do something new. My two favorites are: “as we catch our breath
and let go of our fear” and “free fall in possibility.”
Some amazing lines in a compelling work.
the tempo in this is fabulous…i loved the sense of building up to the climax. awesome piece!
Excellent! I enjoyed this piece… 😉
