Rock and Rolling the Tango

God’s Poetry
 
I read poetry hear colors touch shadows
Glory I behold mine ears caressed with music
Incense scented waves of auroras dancing
Rainbow wheel like jelly fish in space infinite.
 
Rhythmic ecstasy in meters sonnet moons
Abstractions alienations voids blank canvas of
Dreams crescendoing longings in aberrations
Fluting jazz I see soothing setting stars.
 
Metaphors in galaxies orbiting similes
Of asteroids ringing the tropic zones
Of gas worlds lightyears near and far a celestial
Peter Max Taj Mahal Vedas of universes.
 
But for a good morrow a crescent night
Grains of beach sand stars clouded behind
Fireflies in the Eden garden of flora and fauna
Ant hills among the anteaters fireballs in black holes.
 
These are God’s creations after all
Synonyms antonyms in vast matters yet expanding
After all this I gather rainbows hear colors
Of white light Ravelian Bolero prism broken.
 
Float among the milky ways of infrared wonders
Smell and drink the sweet songs of the cosmos
Rock and rolling the tango on the waves cusping
Around the world to a space now finite, my inglenook.
 
I read God’s Poetry, a quiet time all my own.

Musing the night away, dreaming that a twin moon would suddenly appear.

Hi Nelson. I love this poem. Lovely telling of the All. And it reminds me of the beginning of Tolkien's Silmarillion, the creation story he tells that began with the one sound. Lovely.

Hi Linda! I am so very happy to find you here. Thank you for visiting! I am glad you love this poem. One of my favorites of the "All" verses from among my new friends in this circle.
I am not familiar with Silmarillion but you aroused my interest to read the story. That sweet incensed distant sound is always there. All one has to do is listen.

Is that something to do with Transcendental Meditation?

Good question. This sound is more Buddhist than Hindu/TM. It's an articulation of the breath sound that's made during meditation, not necessarily a mantra. Here's one link among many of how the breath sound articulated sounds. And somebody said its the sound the universe makes as it moves through space.

I thoroughly enjoyed the rhythm. I could feel the vibrations. I loved the language. I could hear the music. Good job

Glad you like it Robert. I read somewhere that the universe, moving through space, is creating a music sound similar to "om ah hum", the breath sound we make during meditation.
Indeed we breathe with the universe as we are all stardusts
thus the music we hear.
