Piano Tunes - Poem by Paul Hartal

For Hsia Jung Chang

I met you only accidentally
In the cold ether of cyberspace

But perhaps it was not
A random chance event
A lordless accident
Occurring in a disheveled chaos

Perhaps it had to happen
Through the hidden harmonies
that bond sentient souls
To the boned cosmos

Because as you emailed
This stranger later
You needed the words
With the music of the spheres

I imagine your fingers waving
Touching gently the keyboard

and they bring alive
Magic tunes of Chopin
Born out of the aloof stillness
Of silent notes

The miracle of the sound of heaven
Right here on a forlorn planet
Called earth.
