The text of this piece was written by my sister at my request. I wanted a text to set to music, and wasn't having much success finding one. When I got the poem, I was excited at the imagery and the overall feeling. It was challenging, and fulfilling to set the words to music.

falling into white is written largely without meter, and is the only piece of mine (excluding electroacoustic works) that uses non-metric writing to such an extent.
