...Information is not Knowledge

Knowledge is not Wisdom

Wisdom is not Truth

Truth is not Beauty

Beauty is not Love

Love is not Music

Music is the best.

Nine Spheres


 (by jann castor, 16th of september, 2000)


there is consonance

in Nine Spheres of Scipio

a musical whirring of the otherworld


Whoever passes through them

is free from gods and demons


there is consonance

in voyages

between being human and ethereal


Whoever transcends them

is free from desires and longing.


There are dreams in music

beyond life and death

joining them as one.


to answer their calling

is to become a fearless virtuoso.


devil was a fiddler

wasn't he?
