Meditation on Sound

 I regain consciousness when the kitty duo begins rumbling the “Good Morning It’s Breakfast Time” song. I keep my eyes closed and listen.

Slowly, gently, the day unfurls its splendor

…the sustained warm hum of the heater…

Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender

…soft velar fricatives vibrating on a breath…

Turn your face away

from the darken night, it’s day

…the quiet ticking rhythms of a clock…

Turn your thoughts towards light;

leave the darkness to the night

…the steady pulse of a heartbeat…

And listen to the music of the light.
