Action: Listening to wind chimes
Word Count: 99
Reclining on the porch love seat, I slip into dreamlike reverie as a breeze wafts softly across my face, teasing the wind chimes to sing their song.
Those tickling bells, their random tones, more heavenly to my ears than a Bach fugue.
The king of structure, Bach created musical patterns that conform to precise mathematical principles. Complex and exquisite, his melodies flow in perfect harmony.
In a world of chaos, confusion and uncertainty, his compositions promise order, clarity, and comforting resolution.
Why, then, do the wind chimes’ aimless, unpredictable tunes move me so reverently to drop to my knees?
