We are what we are

And everything we are 

is in everything we do 

I want my hands to sound like rain,

like the heat of the sun, 

the flow of the river, 

the crash of the ocean, 

the soil of the earth, 

the crescendo of wind,

the vast silence of sky, 

the loud clap of thunder,

the tenderness of love

I want my fingertips 

to have the understanding 

of a thousand different touches 

I want my hands

to understand life,

existing in all its glorious impermanent colors,

channeled into the precision 

of countless hours spent 

dancing on strings

Everything I am, I have become  

And what I am, I am 

Played into every note,

Condensed life 

Squeezed into sound
