Love Is …

For Sian on St Valentine' Day

For Sian on St Valentine' Day

Loving thoughts, soulful music … heart, dances!

Oh, music is the meat of all who love.

Music uplifts the soul to realms above.

— Rumi

What struck me was that the first line is a haiku! As can be seen if I re-structure.

Loving thoughts,
soulful music …
heart, dances!

Music and divine love, I am reminded of Hildegard von Bingen. She was a medieval mystic who wrote divine music and said she was ‘a feather on the breath of God’.

Special thanks to Jane Stewart who sent me these lines on St Valentine’s Day.

    The rose, rising to greet the sun, is a loving tribute for your beloved friend, Sian.

    (the first lines that you found Haiku in, were from my soul, not part of the Rumi poem…but seemed to belong there.)
    Loving thoughts,
    soulful music …
    heart, dances!

    Glad you enjoyed Keith. Love, Jane : )
