Single Note

Single Note © Christopher Murphy There’s a single note in a symphony Without which the music has no sound, Yearning for harmony, that special tune, But do you think it knows its way around? Like a single drop in the ocean of desire, Without me the tides can’t ebb and flow, Can it be the wave and the rain and the river And still believe it knows just where to go? Mysteries are not for knowing Who knows where the tides are flowing Who knows where the notes are going? Only Knowing knows… I am a single blade in the prairies of the All And yet what is it makes the meadow green? If beauty’s in the eye, this I could never die— Without the seer what is ever seen? I am a single gleam in the crystal of Aware With All-that-Is reflected here within. With everything in sight dependent on the light, I’m wondering just how did “I” get in?! Mysteries are not for knowing Who knows where the gleams are glowing Who knows why the grass is growing, Only Knowing knows… I am a single note in the Symphony of Time Without me the music cannot play, If there’s only harmony when I am in tune— Maybe I should practice every day……..Every day!
