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
