A different kind of music

Have you heard the music a tree makes?

Wind tapping drumbeats on the leaves,

evoking a thousand-leaved cymbal-song,

sunbeams quivering in a dance-along.

 

Have you heard the music a river makes?

Through meadow, hill and vale it skips,

singing a silver-tongued melody,

of mad longing to merge with the sea.

 

Have you heard the music a forest makes?

The sighs of trees, the call of birds,

a warbling brook’s sweet laughing voice,

in the silence deep softly rejoice.

 

Have you heard the music a flower makes?

As from bud to blossom it awakes,

unfurling each petal in perfect calm,

in its heart, the silence of dawn.

 

Have you heard the music a heart makes?

On its strings as joy or sorrow strums,

as dreams form and shatter soundlessly,

and hopes rise and fall endlessly.

 

Have you heard the music a soul makes?

As shedding body, mind, ego it takes

off in flight, free and boundless,

to float in supreme bliss endless..

Flower unfurled

Flower unfurled

.

 

C'mon, don't be a silent spectator ....
