Sometimes I hear music,
sweet symphonies of sound
–heart tones
unheard by others
just as I cannot hear
their heart tones.

It comes in soft pulsing sound
that invades one’s spirit
when we meld fully with Earth
see and feel her wholeness,
see meaningful contrast in noxious weeds
that coexist in comfort with daisies,
among fully fruited trees,
fragrant blossoms on roses
muddy rivers flowing lazily
to be refreshed in an angry sea.
