🎴 If My Name Were Moon Tonight… 🌛🌝🎑🈷 with Clair de Lune 🌕


Music Animation of “If My Name Were Moon Tonight” with Clair de Lune
Dear Readers,

SoundEagle🦅 is waiting to amplify your affinity for and engagement with the Moon🌕 and the Transfigured Night🎴 as you fully embrace and experience this enchanting post to fathom the very art, poetry and spirit imbued with the sense of awe derived from contemplating the imaginatively celestial and existentially cosmological by immersing yourself in the scenario of asking emphatically and empathetically what could indeed transpire If My Name Were Moon Tonight…

If My Name Were Moon Tonight…

The video above is best viewed in full screen on a desktop or laptop computer, given that the animation was rendered and recorded in high definition (1920 x 1280).

Watch the lunar body coming alive with celestial vibrancy as the scintillating Full Moon is energized enthrallingly by eye-catching astronomical phenomena and stellar activities.

SoundEagle in Full Moon, Sky, Mountain and Wolf

If my name were Moon tonight…🌕☄️✨
Would you play me hawk sonatas
And make my heart swoon outright
With a hill full of nostalgias…?

If I could cease to be Earth’s satellite…
Would you wrench me closer with gravity
To be larger, brighter by your campsite
On the mountain before my next journey…?

If my aim were Moon by starlight…
Would you howl me a lunar tune
That sings of my light-year spaceflight
Drifting through Milky Way’s lagoon…?

If I came as the Moon tonight…
Would you play me eagle concerti
On the hill awash in moonlight
Enchanted by tonal fantasy…?

If my name were Moon tonight…
Would you propose to me with wolf symphonies
And hear my soul croon forthright
Across old memories and new destinies…?

Clair de Lune

Played and recorded in real-time on the organ by SoundEagle🦅

It is almost midnight, and I will turn my computer off, go to bed, and dream beautiful dreams. Thank you for this delightful post! ❤ All the best! Cheryl

  13. Hello SoundEagle. While I am not versed enough in either poetry or in music to given much in a thoughtful comment on those aspects I can say the beginning of the music on the animation could be developed in to a stead low volume music to play in a babies / young child’s room to soothe them. The entire thing could be developed for a screen saver that I think would do very well. Best wishes. Hugs

  14. I hope to come back to the music at another time. I’ve got a husband sleeping on the couch… and I do not have my headphones handy.

    I hadn’t thought about 10 10 20 20 as being lucky but mathematically 😉

    An honorable ode to all those who love in the moment hoping for the extension of more time whether two people in love or parent and child. I ‘lost’ my maternal mother at a young age… And no one spoke much of her. But I think of her everyday and thank her for giving me life.

    I had to check out the ‘Poetry’ category first as it’s the language that resonates with my mind the most. I’ve to say, I absolutely adored this poem and especially the quoted stanza! The moon is a simple phenomena and yet, it seems to be the ink of harmonies.

    I wonder, if your name was the moon, where would you go when the phase of being a ‘new moon’? Where do you hide?

    I unfortunately couldn’t read the weighty articles as there seems to be a bit of a language barrier (the vocabulary is impressively advanced) but I do hope with the continuity of my studies, I’ll be able to discuss the ideas portrayed there.

    Note: Your website is inspiringly well-made. The usage of multimedia is stunning, to say the least.

    • Dear Nour R.,

      Welcome! You have debuted here with an excellent comment characterized by an amicable disposition and a penchant for appreciating poetry. How very encouraging and delightful indeed that you have responded to the rhyming poem entitled If My Name Were Moon Tonight… so well and held it in such high regard!

      Thank you very much for complimenting SoundEagle🦅 on the titular poem as well as the website and multimedia. In addition, SoundEagle🦅 looks forward to your perusing one of “the weighty articles” entitled The Quotation Fallacy “💬”, which reveals that people are often their own worst enemies, being hampered, confined and stymied by their own demons, beliefs, ignorance, inertias, mindsets, fears, bigotries, insecurities, follies and foibles, in spite of, or even because of, their humanity, culture and upbringing. This very special post has cited numerous terms and examples that encapsulate some of the commonest pitfalls in human perceptions and behaviours, many of which routinely evade our attention and conscious control, even in the mere act of choosing, reading or using any quotation or statement. Hence, the Quotation Fallacy is always upon us, impinging and seeping into our lives in various ways. All in all, it is indeed quite difficult to live a well examined life, which is neither a high priority nor an achievable goal for most folks, even though such a priority or goal has become more paramount and essential, considering the urgency of many mounting global issues.

      Apart from poetry, how have you fared with the latest foray by SoundEagle🦅 into Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization presented in high definition and imbued with a scintillating full moon surrounded by eye-catching astronomical phenomena and stellar activities?

      Since you “absolutely adored this poem and especially the quoted stanza”, SoundEagle🦅 would like to sign off with an extra stanza as a partial response to your questions. Please feel free to respond in kind.

      If My Name Were Moon Tonight…

      Dear Nour R.,

      If I waned and hid from view…🌕
      Would you yearn for my returning
      With an entrancing debut
      As a mysterious prince charming…?

Your poem is lovely (I’d love to read more of your poetry), and the music with the visual is also stunning. I truly cannot imagine how much went into this one post alone, let alone all of your other posts. Thank you for sharing this with me.

    • A bespoke acknowledgement is owed to you for commenting twice in succession. SoundEagle🦅 is touched by your story as you overcame illness and convalesced in hospital whilst finding strength and solace in “Clair de Lune”.

      SoundEagle🦅 wonders which version of “Clair de Lune” presented in this post is your favourite, and whether you have had a chance to enjoy the stylized animation and musical visualization of “Clair de Lune” in full-screen mode on your desktop or laptop computer.

      In addition, please kindly accept a symbolic, spiritual and intellectual validation of your coming of age as a special orchid. May you enjoy your experience of the other unique blog of SoundEagle🦅 entitled “✿❀ Queensland Orchid International ❀✿” in recognizing and resonating with the unfolding potential of your life as encapsulated by your self-introduction:

      Dandelions are bright yellow flowers that can grow on just about any lawn upon which their seeds fall. Orchids however, needs very specific conditions in which to flourish and blossom.

      I grew up in a lot of dandelion homes and was exposed to a lot of pesticide. I am that Orchid still waiting for the right environment. I hold out hope that one day I can too become the beautiful flower I was meant to be.

      Yours sincerely,

      • Ros,
        I grew up with years of unspeakable childhood abuse. The trauma left me with hidden scars I could not bear and at 18 I attempted my life. In the psychiatric hospital I met a 60 year-old Cardiac surgeon . He had lost his license to practice medicine for showing up to the operating theatre drunk. We both for, different reasons, had lost the will to live. For some reason seeing me so young with the life gone from my eyes, it saddened and inspired him to play that piano for me. He also played Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata for me:

        I will never forget him, the music, or the kindness he gave me. His love at times, willed my very soul to carry on.

        To answer your question it was Claude Debussy’s piano version he played which was also my favorite version on your post. I am so sorry that I cannot view the animation on my iPad. I’m sure it’s spectacular. I will try and view it at a later time though. You strike me as wildly intelligent and most interesting! I don’t know if I am even bright enough to be in your company.

        Thank you so much for such a thoughtful, meaningful, and special validation. I still have so many miles more to travel on my journey. I haven’t received anything this special since my late mother was alive. I am truly grateful.

        Warmly,
        Bostongirl 🌷

      • Considering how significant “Clair de Lune” has been for you, SoundEagle🦅 is inclined to deduce that the piano is your most beloved instrument. Have you ever learnt to play the piano or other musical instrument?

        Do you find SoundEagle🦅’s rendition of “Clair de Lune” on the organ too far removed from your expectation and appreciation of its original version for solo piano? Do you find the organ version a satisfactory contrast to the piano version by providing extra depth and character to the piece?

        Thank you for intimating something so private about yourself. Childhood trauma resulting from abuse can indeed have long-lasting impacts and indelible scars on the human psyche. Such an assault on one’s foundational years is especially egregious not just because there exists such lopsided power differential between the abused and the abuser but also because the minor involved have limited psychological reserve and emotional fortitude to withstand and contextualize such harrowing experiences. Consequently, the damage tends to be more severe and permanent.

        Nevertheless, time and wisdom will eventually bring more clarity and resolutions to our lives. It seems that there remain some positive experiences and reassuring memories from your past insofar as you still cherish the special gifts, tokens, keepsakes or heirlooms that your late mother had given you. To that extent, we are both in the same boat. Perhaps you might consider publishing a post about your (relationship with your) mother on your blog, as SoundEagle🦅 has done so in this special eulogy-cum-memoir-cum-biography.Rose Greeting

        Yours sincerely,

      • I didn’t find SoundEagle🦅’s rendition of “Clair de Lune” on the organ too far removed from any expectation at all. When I heard Debussy’s version, it literally transported me back in time to that tiny room with that Doctor “B”, it was as if I was there again listening to him play. Bittersweet I suppose.

        I have full appreciation for SoundEagle🦅’s organ version and apologize for not having said so. It is both dreamy and enchanting in a way that cannot be achieved in the original piece. It is quite lovely.

        I grew up playing the violin and later the flute, I sometimes tried my hand at playing my neighbor’s piano as she taught me several chords. I also played another friend’s clarinet. However, singing is my first love. It brings me the most joy. I like to find the harmony in songs. I enjoy most kinds of music with few exceptions.

        Per your suggestion, I have not been writing as much as I used to on my former blog. I am unsure if I should continue writing at all. I don’t really have much talent and never had a lot of traffic. I am not like you, neither talented nor gifted. Sadly, I am just ordinary. The third anniversary of my mother’s death was only a few days ago. I miss her so….She saw the good in everyone, I believe I received that ability from her.

        I do have have many special gifts, tokens, and heirlooms that my late mother gave me. The greatest of which was the ability to love. ❤️

        Take care dear Ros
