rememberances of childhood

{ Sounds }

Sitting still
Is it my breath
the wind?
A fine perception
Makes my heart resound
In tom-tom vibration
Raindrops on the roof
The throbbing of life
If I go over
Behind into
I may dive
Into the silence
And there a deep note
Your voice
In harmony
With the universe
In me.

on music

... how could i have forgotten music?

while it is certainly true that poetry has been keeping me safe and warm at night and water has been reminding me to be light and buoyant, music has been rocking me to sleep.  during the past several months, i have had the opportunity to see some phenomenal live performances, (thank you, mister harvey), that have had as deep an impact as water and poetry have in my healing process.

poetry has said for me all the things i could not.
water has reminded me to be gentle with myself.
and music has given me my voice back.
