Another One

Sculpture by Mark Austin Byrd

Do you hear that sound?

Music no longer moves you

So an angel cries.

    Lovely and melancholy

    • Gospel Isosceles · April 11

      I tend to get that way (melancholy, not lovely 😉 the week before Easter. Palm Sunday has to be the most depressing day of the year.

        I am sure that you are always lovely. Melancholia and I are old friends. Sometimes I welcome those opportunities for quiet introspection.

    The sculpture and words remind me so much of the graphic work done by Kathe Kollwitz, particularly “Woman With Dead Child.” They all speak of something very precious that is lost. Nicely done.

      Kollwitz’s work is breathtaking, those hollowed eyes and gripping muscles. “Perhaps if I squeeze just a bit more, I’ll bring my child back.” I think you understand that this little haiku is not only about music being forsaken but compassion and the desire to want to please God falling copiously like real tears, to make way for life’s other demands. But I am moved. By music, by Kollwitz’s subjects, by God. And I will declare it and fight to make the holy and good things relevant. Especially on the eve of war (and parades for war)…
      You are right about that: some things are precious.

    I am really moved by your statement “And I will declare it and fight to make the holy and good things relevant.” I think that is the core of all great art.

    Sad one.
    Crying angels ? Love smiling ones.
    And Music is a must.
