Do hearts have strings?
For, Lord! They can play!
At the jazz of the neurons
And at the scent of wet clay.
My sense is just a feather
When it pretends to quote the symphony.
The realities penetrating truths
As fresh as a wound from agony.
Lord, my beats do flow, with every
Leap of faith on the reed flute,
The harp, the tune, the center of the moon
The earth is the tree, lullaby is her fruit.
My soul, its case and everything that accompanies,
Dream in golden when hums come true
Befitting raindrops shatter on the notes
The universe is singing and so are you.
