Caught in the spotlight

And this is when
I start to sing;

Time stops,
Activity ceases
A moment of quiet falls
And they wait, expectant.

I take a breath
But send nothing into the space.
It has gone
Life resumes;

The harmony
That would have spread
From place to place
Anointing each with song,

The sentiment
That would have united,
Rolling onwards,

The moment lost
The orchestra disbands,
I walk on
