A Breeze Always In Tune

  • The breeze moves through the branches, leaves, and bushes.
    • Playing among each, symphonic music.
    • Aways in tune.
  • Melodic tones moving my soul.
    • Sometimes rising in urgency
    • Emotion ebbing and flowing.
  • Many instruments playing their part,
    • Branches, leaves and bushes still.
    • Yet, music to my ears relaxing and invigorating.
  • The breeze moves through the forest, meadow, and mountain.
    • Playing for those who are listening
    • To a symphony unparalleled.

  • The music of  Mother Nature is the single musician to be able to strike a pleasant chord with me every time.  We were lucky enough to have season tickets to San Francisco Symphony for 15 years.   They are a world-class orchestra.  We enjoyed every symphony we attended.   Walking in a forest to hear the wind blow gently or a raging windstorm the sounds are beautiful to my ears.   I have watched and listened to a storm blow in across a lake and only at the last moment close the door to avoid getting soaking wet. The sounds of nature are fascinating to me as is a classical symphonic piece of music. 

Ker – Thump, Ker – Thump

  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • My heart beats.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • I live. I live.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • I love. I love.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • You are. You are.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • I am.  I am.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • My heart beats faster.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • You live.  You live.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • You love.  You love.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • We are.  We are.
  • Ker – thump, ker – thump.
    • We love.  We love.
  • Ker – thumpity  – thump.
    • Our hearts beat together.

  • When I fall asleep I can sometimes hear the beat of my heart.  It goes ker -thump, ker – thump.  It is a rhythm to fall asleep to.  As I was waiting to fall asleep the words to this poem comes into my mind as I hear; “Ker – thump, ker – thump. I live.”  The rest of the words fill in.   Along the way I come to the point I know I am not alone and the poem expands.   I read it today and the feelings I had come back as fresh as that day.  I have wondered whether the heart beats of lovers change so they beat in rhythm together.  There are those precious moments between lovers when it seems not only possible, but very likely.  
  • I dedicate this poem to all lovers.
