It’s Not How Many Notes You Play

It’s not how many notes
How many notes you play
It’s the spaces in between
Like lines between words
Of woe or endearment
It’s the silence
That lingers in the air
Silence that lingers
After making love
Spaces in between – lines, notes, words
Silence floats
Peacefully above
Floats peacefully
While lovers embrace
Quiet gentle embrace
Where words
Like notes
Are better left to linger
In the reverie
Of perfection – unspoken
It’s not how many notes you play
It’s the spaces in between
It’s not how many words you say…
