Image for the poem SYMPHONY


If you listen carefully      
You can hear Mother Nature descant    
It's a sound so naturally      
"Alluring and Puissant."    
Every living thing has a vocal of its own    
A bird tweets "yet" hear the running streams     
A place they call home    
Around Trees that are Queens...     
Winds and rain invite others to attend    
Enjoying the event    
In a moment all is regarded as a friend    
After it calms an orchestra is sent     
Now ready to begin...    
Crickets play their violin    
The beauty in the sound    
But then toads croak in    
"Wow just look around!"    
Wolves sneak upon to hear their howls    
as the moon shines bright    
Present now are mesmerizing white owls    
"Just how Gala is this Night?"    
Spiders don't stay behind    
as they weave their webs     
To rhythm as the raindrops skim its lines    
Echoes that reach even mountainscapes    
Suddenly all is silent at the same term    
And in seconds, drums are then heard    
"Why is it a woodpecker?"    
"Rocking like a real drummer?"    
Well rock on redhead fella    
Maybe you'll be talented to play the mbira    
This is so fascinating and entertaining    
The chanting of wildlife     
There's nothing that needs explaining    
Other than to know it's all perfect and nice    
If you listen prudently to its true hidden heart    
You'll hear the sound of a sacred gold harp    
The one gift that gives it "God's Hand Art".    
"Blessing it all right from Genesis start."
