The ancient call of the nusantara



_____________________
yesterday it was ancient
today, it is forever new
by tomorrow, it will be timeless

___________________________________
The beauty of gamelan is in its staccato pride,
the sense of calm as you play to breathe
and breathe to play a song from the past

_________
to know me
to love me
to accept me
you must understand
i am an island girl
and the rhythmic call
of the bronze orchestra
seduces my ancestors
within me


____________

dream catcher
in the fading notes
of an ancient song

I awaken
