Heart Listened


Heart listened
Tone deaf –heart listens

Pre-dawn rustles Streets’ gradual
Hustle bustle
Snowflakes’ steady Blanketing falls~

Preening branches Sporting summer green
Fiery defiant
Autumn leaves Lanes, parks carpeted~

On way to school Beckoning calls
Elongated morning azans
Robust bell pulls chiding devout~

Monotonous harmonium beats dovetailing prayers
Sounds of synchronized
Swish from dusters, wet Sponges cleaning cars~

Chin on window sill Listening to that divine
Symphony created by
Teasing wind twanging Cables overhead ~

Steady pitter patter Of sheeting rain
Drowning sidewalks
Tea kettle whistle Grownup mutterings

In sheer abandon Sight and sounds
Of water falls
Babbling brooks Echoing caves, singing rocks

Wooing majestic peaks Plunging valleys
Craggy canyons
Nature carved Deep crevasses

Tone deaf – heart listened ~
