Desert Song

Desert song The notes are so slow they enter in dreams only and I listen through my fingers The rhythm of the ground sifting between my hands I am listening with my skin to the cool touch of shadow in a deep canyon Desert song like waves of sound riding the stone ridge of the San Rafael Swell Desert song an echo a counter rhythm for my heartbeat in that place where my footprints disappear I listen for the harmony I taste the melody in the air In this place I hear my sound join the slow, ancient sound I am one string on a violin In that moment I am one note in a symphony In that moment I am the most important sound in the universe In that moment I am one sound in a thousand others merging, invisible, in a slowly changing chord a wave like any other so beautiful on the sea perfect fleeting eternal Desert song
