from: The Oracular Sonnets


in a pause
in the pulse
of the
beating wings
of words
I
play
J.S.Bach
Air
on the
G String
it is
music of
great beauty
it is
music of
a
great beauty
who walks
towards you
in a
measured
but
elegant
way
until
she reaches
that
last step
when she
could
reach out
touch you
stop
your pulse
blur
your words
forever
instead
she
pauses
time
stops

This is lovely. Yes I do find that when listening to Bach, or playing Bach on piano -- occasionally time stops, and simultaneously it flies.
