NaPoWriMo Poem #20: In Context

In Context

Music
experienced
Out of context
Is like a partial ocean view
Seen only through a tiny window
Accessed at the top
of a rickety ladder

Created in sacred space
Layered note on note
Voice on voice
Side sounds- small and large
Quiet pause leading to twelve different instruments filling

the
Sound horizon

All that careful planning-
And still if
Heard only
through tinny car speakers
The listener misses out on
Treasure, there for the taking
A kingdom awaits
Needing only decent headphones
To enter
And experience
The work
In context-
Holy
Sound

A sacred offering

from a music artist

To the world
