What Does Heaven Sound Like? - Poem by Trucker Jeff

I listen to a women sing a middle eastern tune,
chanting, wailing and she causes me

with the beauty of her song to thank God for my
blessings and I can picture the women

singing this song dressed in her dark robes with a veiled face,
her hauntingly melodic voice and I

wander and must ask this question,
' What does Heaven sound like? '

I believe all music originates from God.
He is the author of all art and as

I consider God I must ask this question,
'I wonder what religion God is? '

Does the very question cause God to smile?
And even as an Irish ditty dances through my speakers

as it flows from a distant public radio
station I can't help but wonder

'What Heaven will sound like? '
And the wondering of the thing has caused me

to drive miles across the night
and across the shadowed lands of the Carolina's.
