Music Is . . .   8 comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAJ Murphy — Image by kenne

Music is . . .

Music is what
enables me
in my work

soothes me
when I rest

reminds me
of images past
of dreams yet fulfilled.

It is not the words,
nor the beat,
nor the instruments,
nor the relationships —

It is the rhythm
of the moments
composed by
the silence in between.

Music is . . .

a moral law.
It gives soul
to the universe,

wings
to the mind,

flight
to the imagination,

and charm and gaiety
to life and to everything.

— Plato
