With each note a new letter
that forms part of a word
in a sentence in my mind
that has never been heard.
Drawing in places and faces and themes
of deep water blues and empathy greens.
(It's like I'm about to find out what it means)
and while rhythm is driving epiphany on
and peace and forgiveness are singing along
the words of a song so gentle and kind
to each one and all as they float through my mind
echo on walls of my own distant making,
returning as remedy for a heart that is aching.
