First Orchestration on Reflective Space – a poem by Neil Leadbeater

First Orchestration on Reflective Space

The need for several minds. Several minds in the one mind all working to the same purpose. The first: mathematical; the second: spatial; the third: functional; the fourth: creative. The chance above all for dreamtime – the space in which you learn to dance.

Great sambas will come of it.

that easy movement that helps you swing

from one position to another

that lets you corral the length and breadth of it

into a clean, empirical curve.
