Poem at Cantwell Cliffs for solo trumpet and piano
Cantwell Cliffs is a location at Hocking Hills in Logan, Ohio. When I entered Cantwell Cliffs, I was completely alone and surrounded by cliffs and deep valleys, therefore the poem centers around silence, open spaces, and finding comfort in solitude. The opening two lines from the poem are:
“The loudest sound is silence.
Or maybe it’s my own breath.”
