luminous tones,

deceptively alone,

vibrating strings

in a quantum sea,

where resonance weeps

a manifesting melody.


creator is me

and us, in trust.

what we sow

is what we know

of a radical rhythm,

penetrating visages.

bodies wedded to stars,

wrinkles and scars, 

subtle curves,

and soft places 

where longing 

spreads its wings 

for a glint of sun.


love pours 

onto medium of skin,

absorbed within

the radiance 

of  the cosmic sea,

stirring into being

a unified harmony.

  1. The imagery of vibrating strings and harmonics, breaking the illusion of aloneness, is melodious. And I love how your title suggests that it is a responsibility of each one of us to stay in tune, for the sake of the cosmic symphony.
