Steps of Musical Understanding

A young boy

 loved to make a noise

he banged a drum,

though raucous

his mind heard a tune.

~

The boy grew

a piano came to hand

 some lessons he took

 a guide to the wonder

 of melody, its heavenly beauty.

~

He became a man

the gleam and timbre of brass

took his delight.

a trombone his instrument of choice

the slide, oh so sweet!

~

The man travelled, far and wide,

something different

became his need

and a guitar, for many hours

played until his fingers burned.

~

Caressing the strings and neck

discovering styles

and sounds of play

 his friend through long years

beside him all the way.

~

Still she is charming

and ready, always

but he finds the spirit

of music all around

for music is vibration, life itself.

~

He hears the song of trees and water

of wind and colour and paintings

 the thought vibration of words

the rocks and mountains

for they all have life.

~

Now he strives to blend his will

with the tune

of divine creation

and his consciousness with

the rhythm of the one life force.

~

To play the ultimate tune.
