“The Rhythm of Life”… (Day 28)

Tick… tock…  Tick… tock…

So says the clock, as it measures out the moments of our lives.

Tick, tick, tock…  Tick, tick, tock…

Time speeds up as years slip by.

 

Be-dum… Be-dum… Be-dum…

Beats my heart, proving I am still alive.

Be-dum-dum-dum… Be-dum-dum-dum…

My heart now racing with anticipation and desire.

 

Bump-be-dum-dum…  Bump-be-dum-dum…

A mother’s anxiety begins.

Whoosh-be-thump-bump… Whoosh-be-thump-bump…

A child’s answering response.

 

Ding-dong-ding…  Ding-dong-ding…

A visitor arrives: stranger, family or friend?

Buzzzz… Buzzzz…  Buzzzz…

News arrives, good or bad, the vibration never changes.

 

Ding-dong-ding-ding-ding…  Ding-dong-ding-ding-ding…

The bells toll, calling the Faithful to pray, celebrate or mourn.

Brrrinnnggg-tinkle-tinkle…  Brrrinnnggg-tinkle-tinkle…

The Fey Folk can’t resist the bells and chimes, at least according to Lore.

 

BOOM!… De-boom-boom…  BOOM!… De-boom-boom…

Tap… Tap-tap-tap-tap…  Tap… Tap-tap-tap-tap…

Clap… … … … Clap… … … … Clap… … … …

… … Snap… … … Snap… … … Snap…

 

The fire beckons from afar,

The people gather at its altar

Bodies move, voices chant

Souls dance a spiral path…

 

The rhythms of living

Felt deep within my being.

Solid, steady, heard and shared

The sound of life unending…
