mote song

is reverberation


I hear the song
sung by rays
of sun
as they fall

they strike motes
of the colored dust
that fills the air

spin them round

listen to the faint

the day sings


strike me  hard
spin me around
that I can add my own
and harmony
to the song of dust

the song of sun
the song
of every minute of the day


music is
resonant reverberation

  1. I like the words you’ve used for describing dust motes and rays – as being the sun’s song (that’s a tongue twister!) …. or the result of a jam session or something. Sorry, lost my train of thought by the twist …

    And then, the comparison of wanting the sun to strike, so your song can hit the air and make waves, even be transformed from your own composition – bowing to the maestro? is truly wonderful 🙂
