The Wonder of Music

inhale, exhale

breath of air

vibration

frequency

timbre

strumming, plucking, pounding, blowing

rhythms and pitches

captured and arranged

layered, lengthened, lovingly labored over

unison, harmony

consonance, dissonance

the possibilities are endless

with a large but finite

collection of tools and sounds

music is central

to who we are and what we are

our movements, our sounds, our perceptions

define the music we feel

the music we make

the music we share

we are made of music

we live and breathe as music

natural sounds

all around us

are music

when sounds are organized

we attach memories to them

and every time we hear those sounds

we remember

we sing

we dance

we hum

we smile

we close our eyes

we weep

music lives inside us

music is the air we breathe

inhale

exhale

inhale

  1. love the lyrical swing of this, Ed πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, John. I was concerned that it might be too long and clunky; plus not really do justice to the concept of music in general!

      • it is the opposite of clunky πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you, Friend. πŸ™‚

  3. Love this!

    • Thank you, Jeff! I think for some of us music is less escapable than for others, but it truly is all around us and inside us.

  4. I’m still not receiving notification of new posts from your blog, I can’t figure out why, sorry!

    • Me, neither, John. Sorry!

  5. Way to go!! Music in the rhythm of the poetry!

    I love music!! When I ponder it, I am so intrigued to consider that our Father loves it even more, that He created it and loves it so much He put it in us…and made it part of the dynamics of our relationships, with Him, ourselves, and each other. I can’t WAIT to hear what it will sound like one fine day! πŸ€—πŸŽ‰πŸŽΆπŸŽΆ

  6. Me, either!! wooHOOO!
