Still Practicing

Pablo Casals, at ninety-two,

 practiced every

day for hours

because he could

see, he said,  a little progress.

But what kept him

at it when he

saw none? What strange

mystery of patience, love, and

memory came

into play on

those off days?

    In the light of day, see what the Muse brings.
    In the dark of night, reflect on what it could mean.
