"It is a rare few who have managed to build upon—rather than merely mimic—the short piano pieces of Keith Jarrett. In that group belongs Tom Splitt, with his at once restless and restful improvisations." - Neil Tesser, Chicago Reader/USA Today

The Dream of the Cosmos

Humans
Beyond the bounds of Convention suffocating
The steely grasp of Force intemperate
The numbing touch of icy Intellect
Lies the soul resplendent

Breathing a cleaner, more rarefied air
Drinking a richer redder wine
Kissing with fuller, more knowing lips
Owing allegiance to the One who imagined it
Bore it
Fashioned it
Blessed it

Cosmos & Humans
Joyous
My Soul rejoice

Cosmos
My child

Humans
We are your children
We are yours

Cosmos
My own

Humans
O Soul Resplendent
We are yours

Cosmos
My starry children

Humans
Imagined

Cosmos
My imagination

Humans
Born

Cosmos
Of my longing

Humans
And fashioned

Cosmos
From a whisper

Humans
Blessed

Cosmos
With all my love
To be my light

Humans
Illumination

Cosmos
To be my love
To be my love

Humans
In apprehension

Cosmos
To see

Humans
To be your eyes

Cosmos
To dream

Humans
To be your soul

Cosmos
To love

Humans
To be your heart

Cosmos
To know

Humans
To be your mind

Cosmos & Humans
To sing, to dance
To love, to be
To be known

Cosmos
To be born again in you

Humans
To be born again in us

Cosmos
To become again in you

Humans
To become again in us

Cosmos
In the quiet stillness

Humans
In the gravid stillness

Cosmos & Humans
Of a sylvan patch
On the distant shore
Of an ancient sea
In a world beneath
A world beneath a starry night
A world beneath a night
Of sparkling silver

A sylvan patch
A distant shore
An ancient sea
A world a night
A world beneath a night
Of sparkling silver

I dream of love
I dream of light
I dream of joy
I dream of peace
I dream of love
I dream of light
I dream of peace and joy
I dream of you
