An inspirational piece for solo piano, based on an eponymous poem by Jeannine Keenan.Composed and performed by Daniel C. Keenan"Witness" I do not even know if it matters whether the gods under the sea are blue or if the triune God is one or three. Only this: here in this wilderness I sense a presence in the soft green haze of trees, the air heavy with the scent of jasmine— although it is yet too early in spring for blooming. The long shadow of the moon bleeds into light. And in this new day there will be nothing here that was not here Yesterday, only the spring a little riper and perhaps a thrush in a tamarack tree calling for a mate that will not hear or come. Fallen seeds carried in the bellies of birds to a fallow or fertile ground, and fireflies drifting on currents of wind their small lights invisible in the glare of sun. Caterpillars woven in sack-like layers of leaves. But after this long night of wandering I move into a silence that becomes sound. From inside my body the awful whirling of wings, the chattering of beaks, and I am opened,at last yield myself to the light, and the birds nestled for so long in my head take flight. Some few small parts of the earth that are most sacred are stirring, reflecting the movement of stars. Trembling, the seed heads of particular grasses the white feathers of dead birds, the still, dark surface of deep waters are aligning, gathering light, in the darkness the anguished fervor of prayer, I long to be with their shining. (Jeannine Keenan) .
