Human Sounds And Silences - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

Humans have music
and if you listen
you can hear its chords;
the Soul has it's own
soul songs
which call to us across the centuries-
past cultures
without nation states-
and bespeak of
of the human condition;
steel chains
and cords
can be erased
by Music's Chords
we see this time and time again.

Thus music has poetry
because Poetry
is itself music;
our listening
from the Deep Soul
traversing and stimulating
human hearts
bursting fourth
into consciousness
swirling our feelings into being
our thoughts into joy or tears
our feet
to dance
wherein Love's Best

All these are the Poetry
of Music and the Music of Poetry
reflecting the power of the Spoken and the Sung Word.
All this has been with us
down the centuries
and are our
and what
makes us
