I pull a sun from my coin purse each day. And at night I let my pet the moon Run freely into the sky meadow. If I whistled, She would turn her head and look at me. If I then waved my arms, She would come back wagging a marvelous tail Of stars. There are always a few men like me In this world Who are house-sitting for God. We share His royal duties: I water each day a favorite potted plant Of His-- This earth. Ask the Friend for love. Ask Him again. For I have learned that every heart will get What it prays for Most. From: 'The Subject Tonight Is Love' Translated by Daniel Ladinsky

Concierto de Scheherazade is inspired by the
legend of Scheherazade, who survives by her
magnificent storytelling. During the course of
one thousand and one nights she tells stories
so beautiful, and so exiting, with cliff-hangers
as endings, that the Sultan has to hear the continuation,
and let her live for one more night,
and then one more, and a thousand more, until
king Shahriyar ends up falling in love with the
amazing storyteller.
