Rhythm of Waves

The rhythm of the bow
on the cello
recalls
the rhythm of waves.
In both, repeated motions,
the approach and receding
of the arc of the wave
or the bow,
rearrange patterns of sound.
Transfixed by melody
and rhythm without words,
my body succumbs;
the numb waves draw me in
to leave me stranded.
