On listening to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata

On listening to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
by Azly Rahman

Significant
is "night" as an inner cave of the self
           in which the soul seeks solace
            as it speaks to the senses
                      five, six, seven....
            and reconnects with the enlighteningly dark forces
            within the self.

Significant
is "night" as we retreat deep into the abyssimal
           yet blissfulness
           of the soul corroded so much by the multitudinality
           of the stages of life we tried to mediate
                   in this world of form and substances,
                          of the self and the selflessness of the self

Significant
is night to the bright of day
            as dawn greets yet another cycle
            of the creation of the self,
            yet another vow being made in thunderous silence
            in screams of the unconscious
                        -yet another moment of creation to be witnessed --
                                of the Big Bang of the body and soul united yet parted

Night
     you are no longer one with Day.

Will a sonata make us one again?
