Secret Music

Post No. 885


Secret Music


All of life is a poem

A psalm of praise for our Lord

Molecules dance to the music

Played by the DNA strings

While the nucleus hums softly

At the very core of the cell

In sinc with the melody

Encrypted in the codes of our genes

Silver Fish

Post No. 855


Silver Fish


Flash of silver quick as lightning

Fleet of fin (ha) they catch a ride

On the backwash of each wave

Taking shelter behind cropped rocks

Knowing the music of the sea

Feeling the rhythm of the water

Breathing in, breathing out

Anticipating even the crabs’

Sideways stagger —

Silent hunters of the ocean floor —

Confident of the secret pathways

Shortcuts made to aid escape

Music of the Sea


Lift me up on the crest of the wave,

Let me ride home safe to the shore,

The joy I feel when I am borne,

Weightless on the water,

Will be with me evermore.

The music of the sea does not falter,

The song of the sea does not fade,

As I hold the conch shell to my ear

The echo of the sea remains.

The Painting


Subdued colours

Weave the painting

Slightly out of focus

In the smoke-filled room.

People twirled

In another world

On the spinning floor.

Only the music

Holds them together

Tight against each other

Until… until… slowly

The magic of the music

Fades into the night.

Dream Catcher



Disappearing like quick-silver

Just out of reach

Sleeping, waking, always escaping

As quick as a wink, before you can blink

Fluid, flowing into the ether

Nothing to hold, were I so bold as to try

Just an impression, an inkling, a notion

But oh for a potion to clasp it, to grasp it

Before it dissolves in the mists of time

Magic has rocked their complacency,

Questioned their dependency

And infiltrated all the pots.

She has the soul of a true artiste;

Sour faces smile, chatter all the while,

There is music in the air,

Light and love are everywhere –

Gone at last is the status quo

‘Whoever heard of a 5-star kitchen in a Home?’

Waiting in the Wings


He is here

Waiting in the wings

Every eye shall see Him

And every ear shall hear

The glorious music of His coming

When the veil is peeled

And He is revealed

To the eyes of mortal man

He will descend

On the wings of a dove

Clothed in raiment of purest love

And at last we can

Prostrate ourselves before Him

In utter adoration

At the total liberation of our souls
