BEYOND i am so helpless beauty i cannot describe drives to very soul haunted day and night music so transfiguring spreads a love all round conscious illumined in arms of brightest angels i will fear no more ……………………………………. On hearing/seeing Wauldtraut Meier sing Isolde’s Liebestod (love-death) from Tristan und Isolde

I too have been brought to tears - so completely over-whelmed by the beauty of a human voice singing from the depths of their soul. Sensational Haiku's here my dear friend. Love, Lainie

It's wonderful to hear how this music touched your spiritual side, Daver. It always seems like a blessing when music/songs can make us feel so deeply. I love the image in your last verse. When I'm down, I try to imagine myself surrounded by angels. Great work, my friend! Love, Carolyn

You have a beautiful soul to so appreciate music and be touched by it and then produce this kind of poetry. I remember this movie but forgot the music in it. Wonderful story, huh? No, I don't know that moon reference you said to me. I got the idea from reflections while looking at a purple sunset picture. LUv, Andrea
