Sound Leaps


It’s the space
between the marimba bar
and its resonator
where sound leaps

from vibrating wood
to metal column
one oscillating to another
horizontal plane to vertical
from here to there

the space is just
as we do when we listen
a leap from being struck
by music to being moved by it
becoming sound’s wave.
