The Invitation Of The Earth To Hear Its Songs.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the earth
if you listen enough
ears on those walls
to each fiber of wood
has composed a lot of songs
for the goodness
of our
souls: the songs of the sea waves
against the sands, such a shushing sound
the thin air that kisses those daffodils
the soft feet of rain tiptoeing on the grass
the whispers of the flowing waters
from your fingers to the
skins on your belly
the lips that kiss
the bodies that meet in desire
rubbing against each
other on
lonelier nights
the flights of bird wings
above the treetops
the fluttering butterflies landing on the petals of a rose

sad is the man who does not hear all these
and love life
sadder is the man who hears all these
but shuts his heart
like slamming doors
without keys
