In your midst

February 16, 2010

I, God, am in your midst.
Whoever knows me can never fall,
Not in the heights,
Nor in the depths,
Nor in the breadths,
For I am love,
Which the vast expanses of evil
Can never still.

— Hildegard von Bingen

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.
