Universal tone

We linger in the sands of memory
slipping,
sliding beneath-
no mark remaining,
nothing concrete,
solid.
A mere echo of what once was
like grasses gathering piles,
this and that caught up
in the Western wind that blows,
the universal tone
like singing bowls
comforting,
reaching in to the soul
calling you home.
Still blue green waters calm
like gentle rain in thick forests,
heady scent filling
the senses,
the memorys hold
gathering in perhaps to remember
if only for this moment
we lay like stones under the sun,
pieces of stars fallen
on windswept dunes we gather
reading the signs written above
reflective on water in reverse
from start to finish
we become at peace
in solitary fashion,
decorating this life
with who we are,
what we’ve become.

  3. Who we are and what we have become
    Is what I call the untold mysteries and secrets of the quiet storm
    The elements of the earth and how it dictates……
    Simply beautiful Kim

  4. Just wondering if you have any singing bowls. I have 4 or 5 but put them away when they started bothering my older dog. Now that he is waiting for me at the rainbow bridge I should bring them out again. Thanks for reminding me of their existence! Really speaks to memories 🙂

    A lovely image that honors each speck of sand, each memory, and the persons we have become! 🙂
