Haiku for Cris, by someone who can´t count

Hands

of a competent cook,

eyes of a gazelle.

This came to me one night watching Cris Montull playing: she´s a pianist and composer living here in Gijón – love her!

When I find a photo you´ll see what I mean – and if I can get a sound clip too – !  In haste, I´ve already burnt my dinner.

Clever Cris has just won the AMAS (Asturian Music Awards – freely translated) for keyboards – here you can hear a microscopic quote from her playing – and not such a good photo as here! http://www.premiosamas.com/premios.asp
