Resonance: Oh Sweetest Song
Resonance: when one object vibrating at the same natural frequency of a second object causes that second object into vibrational motion.
That reminds me of one of my favorite Rilke poems...
Rainer Maria Rilke
it doesn’t touch your soul? How can I raise
it high enough, past you, to other things?
I would like to shelter it, among remote
lost objects, in some dark and silent place
that doesn’t resonate when your depths resound.
Yet everything that touches us, me and you,
takes us together like a violin’s bow,
which draws one voice out of two separate strings.
Upon what instrument are we two spanned?
And what musician holds us in his hand?
Oh sweetest song.
