Family Jewel

Your perfect faculty
honed through practice
patience, desire,
gives expression to
a family of rough,
unsung talent.
Those that hear
just a little more,
savor sweetness
a little longer,
feel the rhythm
of life thrumming
through their souls
in breathless dreams.
You play for all who
came before you.
When music casts you
into wild places marked
by spiritual abandon
and gives anima wing
with which to soar:
remember stories told,
and strings strummed
in cool autumn nights
lit by familial fires.
