Musical Bliss

My day began with stress. I know, right? Imagine that even. Well, it all began with getting the 17 year old to the bus stop by 6:30, racing home to get the 8 year old ready for school, get my hair done, and pack the kitty up for her visit to the vet to be "fixed". Sheer madness. Racing around clear across town and back to get the youngest to school by 8:45 was almost impossible.
Luckily he arrived on time and from there I hit the road home to pick up some supplies, then off to my mother's house to carpool to Chenery Auditorium.
Because I dearly love my sister, I was willing to skip my usual bedtime to hear the Kalamazoo Symphony, watch the Kalamazoo Ballet Academy dancers, and my sister and Jay perform.
I am so glad I went. The musical was so uplifting. The dancers a delight. And my sister and Jay, I couldn't be prouder.
There were two extremely phenomenal things I saw and heard there today.
First, there was a high school girl who solo'd on her violin and her fingers were flying so fast I just could not keep up. She was amazing. Such talent.
Second, was a sixth grade girl who composed a piece via piano that the symphony transformed into a masterpiece. Her piece was so beautiful. I was enthralled.
So much accomplishment in these young ladies. I can only imagine how much it will multiply with age.
Anyway, it inspired these thoughts in me today.

Can you hear the music playing or is it only in my head?
Your stare is blank yet kind "What was that?", you said.
I know your being polite and my sanity is in question.
Never fuss with one of "Them", I guess you learned that lesson.
How sad you miss the melody, such a beautiful refrain.
If you could merely hear the tune that's playing in my brain.
The aria of angelic voices, the metronome keeps time.
Oh the joyous composition leaves me so sublime.
"It's your loss", I think at last. Saddened none the less.
If only I could share the genius of my wonderful mess.
