Etude in Black And White
from its blackness. The panther springs
and arpeggios follow
a wave. It rises to tower,
a pyramid of alignment.
The void fills with its design.
Runs born in cimmerian caves
reveal traces of lambent light,
freed of stricture, they expand
into luminous energy.
Sound transforms the empty darkness
with ornaments of movement.
Notes ascend from dense minor chords
fly free as positive ions
forming the music of the spheres.
Rising from the depths of Cheops
to illuminate Alnilam.
Blazing center of Orion's belt
births the stars of the universe
wherein the divine source sustains.
