Theme: Faith

Song of Faith

I listened
to mynahs’
chatter
a coppersmith’s
rhythmic staccato
the pigeons’ coos
a magpie robin’s
sonata rising
like a diva’s aria
uninterrupted by
raucous squawks
of parakeets

and I wondered
at the symphony
orchestrated
by humans...

the flute of love
overpowers
notes of discord
drums
of compassion
drown out the
jarring beats
of bias
violins of
sympathy
strum the music
of kindness

I am assured
man will
raise man
to great heights
hope sings
eternal
in the breast
of humankind
we’ll all
stay blessed
and Mother Earth
will survive
