Symphony Prose

I'm going to post some prose I wrote about the symphony today. I'm going to publish these - I will post the actual entry on Friday when I have some more free time after work. Please let me know what you think of these prose pieces.

Rhythm and Twirl

Let the symphony's rhythm twirl around your ears. Let the violins and harps buzz in your lobes; hypnotizing as you sway in your seat.

Let the drums pirouette from your hair to your eyes. May the grace of the piano, ferociously ablaze with fire, bless your memories -- even if the sonata brings you to tears.

But, most of all the the music lighten your days, transforming you from a dark place to a center that resonates peace, light, and inner spirit -- let the glorious music guide you!

Sheherazade's Symphony

Hang your head in prayer as the bow glides along the cello's strings. Seas of Baghdad come alive as the maestro guides me to the shore to meet Sheherazade.

Her symbols of hope spin a clever tale - hang your head in prayer.

The drums and strings boom, roll together in unison -- the waves crash on the shore. Hang your head in prayer and give thanks to endless tales and gracious mercy of God.


  1. Glorious prose, dear Jessica Marie! This was a beautiful way to express the hypnotic effect of the orchestra music and the feelings stirred as it washed over you. Going to the symphony was clearly an enchanting experience for you. Making music in all its infinite variety is among mankind's greatest achievements.

    1. Thank you, Shady! This was my first time ever going to a professional symphony and it was just amazing. You're right - music in general is one of mankind's greatest achievements. I love music.

  2. I've only been to the symphony once. Beethoven...
