Alone in silence

Alone in silence I stand

All in front all dressed in black

The moon gazes at my hands

As a judge watches from behind…

A-screw the silence shatters

-As a ballerina shatters space-

While you shatter with it

Melodies for days

Alone in silence I stand

All in front dressed in white

As you gaze upon me

As I smile at the wind in the night sky

How the day has come

Dreams have I dreamed

Of this moment for many days, weeks and years

Alone in silence I stand

In front of me all in red

As we do what we love

On this day of all days

December I think it may

be the day of destiny

as I paint the melodies

in black, white and red

to all the audience away

As we dress the night

In the most amazing shade of gray…
