Music of Ages

The transcendent notes flutter across the page

to ears across time

do I hear the resounding echoes

that amplified off gilded walls and

bounced off of wooden floors that held the creaking chairs of

kings and queens

whose adorned ears gathered the timbre

through their soul

until they wept

with joy and grief?


when set to rhythm,

a humble change, a subtle shift

creates a symphony

in our bones

across stretches of time

to shake

to buzz

to warm

where there is no color

but what you gather from behind your eyes

perfect purple, black, red, orange

inviting as a siren song, that plays

among the cold and distant stars

proof humanity can create

a shared space

where all bones 

feel at home.
