The quote that I’ve chosen for this weeks haibun is
‘ music in the soul can be heard in the universe ‘
The primordial hum, the hymns of Veda, the music of the spheres, everything animate and inanimate gives off sound. String theory has it that every particle that emits a force ( a boson ) has a partner particle ( a fermion ) that makes up matter, all held within varying structures of symmetry.
When learning the piano ( briefly ), the realisation that sound was so beautifully and intricately mathematical, opened in my mind a vast portal to a universe structured in sacred geometry.
the touch of ivory
across black space
A short lived experience, the portal closed, leaving me only with a memory and intuition.
heard in space
seven billion breaths
sound one note
