Mozart

It is not about having all the answers.
If you had them ahead of time,
You’d get it wrong somehow.
Miss-time, jump the gun or wait too long.
You have to know,
It will be there when needed:
Ideas that tumble from mind, mouth and pen like a jumbled tune.
But Mozart didn’t call endless notes a symphony,
He wrote one in it’s own time,
Letting it evolve into the next,
Letting the pauses stretch,
Letting the music build,
Making the most of each moment-
In the fullness of it’s flowering,
And not a moment to soon,
Unrushed-
Notes became music.
This is the way of he who has mastered the tumbling stream,
He who no longer seeks the future,
But lives the present,
Seeking answers,
By watching questions,
Answer themselves.
