Heart Is A Melody of Time

image

For Pharoah Sanders & Chick Corea & John McLaughlin

Just as we live
We die
& heart’s a melody

In this score to life
Shooting up
The veins of time

With sapphire bullets of love & hope

Astral traveling
To the hymn of the 7th
Echelon…& beyond–

To where
Death is a waterfall
Of downbeats

Baptized
In the rhythms of one blood
Within us

Preaching to the choir of an acquired now

From the pulpit of poetry
In voices of verses
Witnessed by eternity’s breath
Along sunlit paths
As we are brought back

To the wonders & signs
That beckon us
Still.
