Collaborative Creation

This evening Astrid wrote a poem on 'night' and I wrote some music. Took about an hour. The first piece is the music I wrote independently of the words... Then put the words to it (second piece). The poem follows...


I wish I would sleep better at night.
A blue and golden bridge to oblivion.

At night I am alone.
Once in a while I am not.

I am not alone. I am awake. Small thoughts
enveloped, systematically softened in cosmic vaults.

I close my eyes again.

Small thoughts become luminaries, witness to toil
and tumble.

Aeonic fixtures, never forgotten.

And I thank you that nights are longer than days.
