Losing Terrance

The universe shuddered

and he was gone,

Our Orpheus taken in one

jangle of time’s contraction.

My visceral earthquake

and that morning I knew

we had lost a piece

of our place in the infinite.

If harmony’s spheres exist

In galaxies of endless dark

Over fractured time he will

join them and play again. 

One thought on “Losing Terrance

  1. Terrance will be sorely missed. Said he many times as a violin teacher/coach: learn the notes, make sure of the intonation and, then, JUST PLAY. And play on I will in his honor.
