Johann and Me

March 23, 2014

Making my bed on a Monday
Morning
No sun appears through a curtain
Of low clouds
Inland from the sea
The classical music station
Broadcasts just noisy
Static
When it’s music I need
On this gray sunless
Day
I insert a CD
Into the CD player
Preludes and fugues
Of Johann Sebastian Bach
And at this moment for me
It is the sun
Breaking through the clouds
Songs of the wind
The roar of thunder
It is the love     the joy
The beauty from
ALL THAT IS
Channeled through the genius
of a human soul
And the fingers of a man
Who lived on earth
With me

Oh the glory     the magnificence
Of this music
Fills me with the majesty
The wonder of everything
Beautiful
In this world
As the brilliance of
Another
Four centuries later
Brings Johann Sebastian Bach
To Life
I am at

Peace

    Hi Wendy,
    This is so good. I am surprised and yet not surprised. It suits that you would make such a poem.
    Thank you,
    Sari xoxo
