#FlashbackFriday – Poetry – “Symphony”

Symphony // by Jennifer Patino

 

There are those

who pray by the glow of

the kitchen light

 

in the coverlets of billows,

the moon beaming bright

 

The sky – a direct

reflection of God

 

The night – birds call,

the moth’s wings answer

 

A melody;

soothing,

calm

 

An answered sigh,

the desert’s bitter breath

 

The chill, welcomed

because it makes them

 

feel alive,

warm inside

 

They can hear the stars twinkling,

eyes of the angels winking

 

There are those who smile

in the dark

for they are never

really alone,

in tune with

nature’s music,

 

they make it

their own

 

Each note of life, a gift,

every being in rhythm

to uplift

 

Blessed ones, chosen,

singing silently to themselves

 

Content, unafraid,

because now they are safe

 

Love lives in their eyes,

faith is felt in their cries

 

Wisdom is found

where the true self lies
