The Sound of the Universe

The music of the universe comes to me
Galaxies gliding
Black holes gulping down stars
Our generous sun burning in life-giving warmth.

On this sweet Earth
I hear the wind
The trees that sing.

Above the river’s voice
Cars and trucks murmur: Hey beauty!

I laugh with friends
I cry inside with all the searchers
How many miles to the border?

Hate, pain, beauty, love
The sound of the universe.
