On Resonation


Musical instruments have resonators
to amplify and project their sound
out to the musicians
and to us, the listeners.

But we resonate too
along with the music,
in sympathy with its aims,
in tune with its mood,
oscillating to its rhythms.

Our resonance
gives depth to music’s meaning:
picture this circuit
where sound is the current
and we are its wires,
allowing songs and symphonies,
raps and ballads
to travel through us,
powering our inner life,
granting us zing.
