Sudden Symphonies

What is it about her

that draws me near now?

By chance her trance

found me clear and loud.

It has been a long time

since we became familiar.

There is a part of me that

yells at me, “Do you feel her?”

Can you not see now that

everyday mundane things

have a patina reflecting

all beauty that one brings.

Not in ways lust works

has her fancy hit me home.

More like a radiant light

in the horizon in the ozone.

No one controls me to say

what’s right and what’s wrong.

I am unto myself master of

the tune my voice sings along.

I know my sanity slips in

and out of this plane often.

I’ll remain in chorus with

her thoughts unto my coffin.

I know the solution to solve

because I’ve thought it a lot.

I find that when I don’t think

of her I am what I am not.

It almost seems like my

whole life has rotated around

the day we would meet and

what calm my soul has found.

Here in the new year that

we now find ourselves living,

I revel in choirs she conducts

inside my soul she’s giving.

Out of thin air amidst trees,

that topple in a strong breeze,

I find myself asking myself

how long before earth I leave?

Again now so sudden I go

to rise above the tall canopy.

I just reflected on her voice;

now playing is a symphony.
