The power of music to change lives, emotions, and situations.

The Flute, And A Symphonic Lull

Lawrence_original_3-1by Lawrence Estrey16 Feb 2019

An orchestral flood,

Loud and passionate,

The music reaches all corners of the Great Concert Hall,

A triumphant crescendo.

Near silence follows.

The tempo changes,

The volume drops,

A flute whispers.

A melody almost childlike,

Clear but barely audible.

A lullaby or a hymn,

Or a love song. Or a poem.

The audience listens in tense expectation.
