That Yo-Yo Ma

A place of peace, OOthat’s where Yo-Yo Ma OOhas brought me

Pandemic outside.

I’m following Yo-Yo Ma OOthrough a pleasant maze, OOup, down, and around, OOand around.

That Yo-Yo Ma!

More strident now, OOin a thrilling way, OOmellow, measured, and thrilling.

People ill and dying OOoutside. Work to be done OOoutside.

But in this moment OOin this room Yo-Yo Ma has seized my soul. He is my tour guide OOto a place of safety, OOa sense of comfort and ease.

Pandemic somewhere. Food lines OOin the land of plenty.

Music in here. Yo-Yo Ma in here. The future is bright OOin here.

My Yo-Yo Ma.

My soul twirls, glides, and skips OOas Yo-Yo Ma spins along OOahead of me.

I climb. I soar. I drift.

Pandemic somewhere OOelse.

I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma.
