Frozen music?


Autumn leaves caught in their dance, now part of this winter composition, which will transpose itself when melted by the sun. Temporary; just a song from a passer-by.

Not like a fused glass pendant, the symbols carved in the Rosslyn Chapel, or Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim in Bilbao.

These things are lasting, some say, frozen music.

I call architecture frozen music.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us.
~ Franz Kafka

I start from something considered dead and arrive at a world. And when I put a title on it, it becomes even more alive.
~ Joan MirĂ³

as a song thaws
tendrils melodically
ascend as if to a gothic
cathedral's pitch,
or a city
street's iron
grate - who
knows which touches
supreme
heights
