The haunting sounds fill the mountain

Energies spread like a fountain

Precious time spent calling all life

Releasing from the daily strife


Play my true heart. O flute player

Help me remove the next layer

Let me sink into your soul’s light

Letting go of the city’s fright


The spirit of Kokopelli

Feeling it deep in my belly

Watching the animals respond

Seeing a frog jump from the pond


Playing my bones as if hollow

You I certainly will follow

Like the old wandering minstrel

Just like the hovering Kestrel


Play on!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I don’t mind that this is not a quatern. I am too mesmerized by the rhythm and rhyme and the music I hear coming in over the words. A lovely poem. I do like that Native Flute and you have done graceful justice to it.

  3. I agree that no poem is a mistake. When reading it I was not thinking of form, but instead I got lost in the beauty of your words with the familiar flute playing. (I work in a daycare and we play this music for sleep
    time) A lovely read. 🙂
