15 Lines for Gidon Kremer

The left hand moves on the fingerboard.
The index finger travels across the positions.
With the movement arises Space.
The dance of Space Woman on the string.

The right hand moves the bow up or down on the string.
Then arises the sound,
conditioned and dependent.
And with the sound arises Time.
The continuous act of Origination.

When the hands meet with the instrument,
Mind arises,
Bound and dependent.
It observes and knows.
When the sound fades away,
Mind also ceases.
