Distance – PianoTweet no. 688

To express distance
we often use kilometers or miles
or light years;
sometimes even nanometers.

It can be far, it can be close.
In universe distance is relative.

Distance between souls and spirits
is a matter of insight and consciousness,
of empathy and spiritual contact.

We don’t need traditional instruments.

We just have to direct
our energy and warm, powerful thoughts
to get close
to the souls we love.

Helicopter View – PianoTweet no. 686

This music has very little to do with a helicopter sound.

The title refers to “the rising”,
up into the “sky”,
and look down to get an overview
on what happens “down there”.

Sometimes it’s better
to look from that position.
To understand the systems,
the mechanisms that influence eachother,
how all details together are part of the All.

And still,
a helicopter can’t rise
high enough
to full understanding.

I like to listen to the radio.

Because it can be
a paradise for the ears and
a source for the imagination.
Music, voices, soundscapes.

More than once I listen to discussions.
And I hear the chaos in a discussion
that starts and grows
between people talking and talking,
their characters and opinions.

Here’s a musical interpretation
of a discussion I heard today.

About the countless refugees
on their dangerous and painful voyage;
crossing the Mediterranian Sea
from Africa and Asia
to the continent of Europe…

There must be a way to help them!
