Music and Spirit
. . . the music and writings of Carla J. Giomo
Saturday, November 17, 2012
Philosophers have said that we love music
because it resembles the sphere-sounds of union.
We have been part of a harmony before,
so these moments of treble and bass
keep our remembering fresh.
Hearing the sound, we gather strength.
Love kindles with melody. Music feeds a lover
composure, and provides form for the imagination.
Music breathes on personal fire and makes it keener.
A Year with Rumi,
translated by Coleman Barks)
