“I do not pretend to understand his music. I doubt if anyone, including those playing it, really understands it… I feel this music, or rather, as I said, it opens up a part of my self that normally is tightly closed, and seldom recognized feelings, emotions, thoughts well up from the opened door and sear my consciousness.”
Don DeMichael

Coltrane - The Story of a Sound

Witness Fault

n

Every time I witness a fault in myself I am in the presence of  an inner witness
A witness in me that knows better
Every time I embrace the witness I drift gently towards better
Every time I grasp the fault I fall swiftly away

Every time I witness a fault in another I am in the presence of an inner witness
A witness in me that knows better
Every time I am softly present for the other we drift closer together
Every time I am harshly critical we drift quickly apart

Every time I embrace
Every time I am present
My witness grows stronger
Every time I grasp
Every time I am harsh
My witness grows silent
