Listening with new ears

LISTENING TO STOCKHAUSEN’S CARRE  

with COLIN (aged14 months)

 

 

High spaces, free and contained –

embraces, sacred and profane.

 

Each moment a change;

change the instant

start anew.

 

Fresh breezes, shrill streams

chimes ringing –

 

the baby smiles –

he shares

none of my amazement;

 

constantly amazed

his is affirmation.

He laughs, picks up a new toy.

 

I relax –

immersed in the present.

 

Spaces

free and contained.

 

              Malcolm Evison
