Quick hands move on each string,
and I sat back and watched
Beautiful tunes carrying
Humming voices,
Keeping me human

Crossing bodies, pursed lips,
silent hands, hushed hips
Piano, trumpets, laughing instruments

Crying people, salty fingertips
Joy fills the air

Babies crying,
mommas sighing,
fathers dancing,
siblings chanting

Ridges and wrinkles
In foreheads
Books in ankles

Applause! Applause!
Standing people
smiling faces
sitting ducks
crying places

This really just struck me after church one Sunday.
