Maestra Zhang Zhang

Violinist

In the beginning, there were sounds of bamboo trees, swaying softly outside the high window.
Slow shadows of leaves and sunlight changing places across the wrinkled ceiling, above the basket where I slept, dreamt and waited.
To the smell of fresh flowers and wild grass, echos of water somewhere near.
I must have lay there, nameless, speechless, waiting for everything to begin, to happen, to become.
