Can you hear the Music of the Breeze?
The Music of the Leaves?
The Music made by Birds?
The humming of the Trees?
Can you hear your blood singing?
Can you hear the heart pinging?
On a machine that says you are alive,
Can you hear your breath steaming?
Can you hear the Earth thumping?
Can you hear the Sun sizzling?
On the blowing brown burning mud,
Can you hear the calm rain drizzling?
Can you hear the many rhythms?
The melodies, the musical systems?
Can you hear the muffle of that cloud,
Can you hear Nature’s lyricisms?
