piano & windsong

piano and windsong
                   for KK

wind_chime

the notes
of piano
dangled among
the strokes of
the wind chime
on the balcony
an equal
trueness
of tone,
no faltering,
no restraint
of wrist
together in
the evening
wind
reminding
in mingled
drift
how you
could never
strike a false
note for
you rang
as pure
in touching
even with
just a
breeze of
my truth to
stir you,
you, as true
to the heart
of the note,
as to
the unmoving
line of the
time
signature
we never
need see
