Fully Orchestrated

out of silence
a piano voice
tinkling on the high keys
a repetative riff
content with itself
for now, waiting easily
calmly for change
it is an intriguing figure
but seems unsure how to proceed

how long is too long
before cracking wide
into grand orchestral space
colored and flighty
rearranging destiny
by the milli second

how long is too long to wait
for movement designed by
cross currents of pounding pulse
massaging into action
and sensation
bawdy, to naughty

how long are we to wait
for the anticipating holes in our souls
to be filled with this
full bodied elixer of bliss

releasing the wildness
in those of us who have been tamed
