When I gave this song to one of my friends, he played it for days on repeat. Such was the impact of this song, though he hardly ever listened to instrumental music.
Jeff Oster takes you to an ethereal journey with his flugelhorn and the poem is inspired by the song of the same name from his album ‘True.’
You can listen to the song here as you read the poem:
(Inspired by a song of Jeff Oster)
I march towards the Saturn who calls me from a distance with an enchanting sound.
It sounds to my ears like a call from my native place. It is deep, original, intriguing and curiosity-awakening.
The density of this sound covers everything that my ears can hear.
It is all-powerful and seems to clutch my being into a wavelength that is unearthly. It is ethereal.
Sitting on a mat in a small room before a life-size photograph of my God, I contemplate on my being while this sound carries me on wings to an inward journey.
The flight is fluid, placid, and floating.
With all other sounds almost blocked from my being, I am able to hear the hush that pervades the presence.
I feel standing before my Overself, silently communicating the yearnings of my heart.
The tryst is completely soundless but every unspoken word resonates with a vibrant energy.
This is something that fills my inner being with a strange kind of bliss, which feels unsatiated.
It wants to undertake this flight again and again. My whole being pines to immerse itself completely in this experience and forget the earthly existence.
It is my flight to the inner Saturn where I meet my Self. It is unstoppable.
