Word Sounding

The sounds of words can shake the skies or cut an ego down to size, when knowing sages have their say of fitting words to seize the day, conveying wisdom from the wise. An avid versifier tries through orphic craft to harmonize with sense and lyric overlay the sounds of words. From inner cosmos may arise the wordless visions word defies that seek to find a worded way with synesthetic interplay, and thus in poem crystallize the sounds of words. ~ Harley White

Your rondeaus are execelent, Harley. Although I've told you that before. P.S.: Orphics were familiar with the theory and practice of Shabda Brahman. You seem to have an idea too.

This one is really great. I did enjoy the reading. As for the ideas of this poem, they are a bit like some concepts in the theory of transcendental sound, namely, the third stanza.

Thank you for the compliment. Indeed I have written several rondeaus, though this one seemed particularly challenging to write. And no, I did not have any such association in mind for 'orphic'.

Do you mean 'How'? I have no answer for that. For me, it is a mysterious process. And when I put a poem 'out there', I hope for the best...
