A Musical Gift

by Linda Eve Diamond  

   

From a centered seat, one voice 

started softly singing.

 

All around her, a hush began to gather

as everyone leaned in for this gentle offering. 

 

Her voice, a rose, in bloom, blossomed, filling the room

with soft waves, sound petals, reaching out, touching 

 

swirling and embracing us, with astonishing grace

drifting to a sacred hush, as we listened still to feel

 

the resounding sounds, the last note rounding, lingering, 

slowly fading as it floated, as we listened for the magical

 

mystical, vibrational vanishing point 

where a heightened silence falls

 

giving way to rising sounds of awe and rain,

connection, affection, and shared appreciation 

 

for the power of one

l
oving voice.
