Instantaneous Momentary Zen – Odyssey in Exile

A sound occurred and I listened and I heard.
It moved about me quietly yet it made itself known.
Cautiously and slowly it enters my mind not disturbing another thought that may have been before.

As it flowed through the tunnels & chambers it did not miss a
single place. It touched each feeling softly yet intensely, with it’s warm, glowing fingers.

I am set upon by something loving, clinging, stirring. My body lies unmoved in sight yet moving inside with quiet emotions. Something has been added to me. What can it be? Will it last? Will it come upon me again?

Oh yes, it will, it has; it is living all around us.
This sound is everywhere.
This sound is music

Aug 1 Bubbler’s Weekly Challenge – Purple

This music is from my son’s prog-rock band formerly known as The Ethereal Union, now Odyssey in Exile. I am proud to say that I named this tune for the band – :o) The guitar work is my son, Chance. I created the video for this piece of art.
