Music transports me to another dimension.
Surprised by my body’s emotional reaction,
tears well in my laughing eyes,
throat breaks into hopeful hymn
of faith in miracles and God.

Perception of a beautiful lilting voice uplifts.
Lighter than air ascent to stunning sky.
Mystical songs of newborn baby cries,
beauty of last whisper of elder who dies,
wave the magic wand, I am born again.

Symphonies always stir my soul.
I drink each note deep into my cells.
I savor every sound like fine wine.
My being soars, is raised to heaven.
I am forever transformed.
