Listen

Bell chimes, rain battering the roof,
The howl of a coyote 
And the echo of clapped thunder
Beating the life out of the sky,
All the sounds of the world
Drowned out by music kissing my ears.

Totally immersed in sound,
My mind races and relaxes simultaneously;
My heartbeat matching each song’s tempo,
I create while critiquing others’ creations. 

I’m far from an audiophile,
But I’m still a sucker for
A well-written verse or
Finely crafted measure. 

The harmony of my own art
Is the melody I write to. 
Listen, and you shall learn.
Learn my habits, nuances, quirks,
Even my vocabulary. 

This rings true for everyone.
All it takes is patience and time
To listen.
