For this one, the concept of letting go struck me, along with the idea of a soul returning to its home with the stars. The beginning and the end come back to the same spot in the circle – and in this case, flow onward into eternity.

Hear the music

 

Now that day has exhausted me
I give myself over, a tired child,
to the night and to my old friends, the stars:
my watchful guardians, quiet and mild.

Hands – let everything go.
Head – stop thinking.
I am content to follow
where my senses are sinking.

Into the darkness, I swim out free:
Soul, released from all your defenses,
enter the magic, sidereal circle
where the gathering of souls commences.
Hermann Hesse
