How true flight feels

(See this link for the music:
J.S. Bach – Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major BWV1007‬)

first draw of bow to string, that root note
runs down my spine, seeks my heart, then
I’m lifted, lightened, worldly burdens
fall away, as a craft ever climbing
on a buoyant, rhythmic breeze
seeks the azure above the pall
circling ever higher, with it
intensifying emotions, linking
joy, bliss, jubilant notions with
tears I can not find label for
then, a surprise of August 8, 2008
my Marina, knowing my love for this piece
had a cello player place this as she
came down the isle toward me
imbuing upon my heart, an image
forever linked to this music
