Be attentive to the melody of life.

There, your spirit shall set out dancing.

A poem by Harry Costin- inspired by the painting

Piano in the sky

A stairway to heaven

Lying on the horizon

Each key

White or black

A step on a ladder

A note, a space sacred

On the chessboard

Of life.

Eyes with tears

Of infinite compassion

Holding open

A doorway leading

To a path invisible

A world of harmony

Painted in the sky

Harmony of the Spheres

Dancing, Singing

A song of eternity …
