Acoustic Prayer

guitar in hand--- music surrounds me trumpets shout halleluiah; trombones bellow testimonials; bass drums dance in spirits; while violas string deliverance; all in perfect harmony until the piano keys call for silence. the saxophones rest; the flutes un-draw their blinds; the tambourines bow their heads; then all woodwind hearts & harmonic minds are cleared. I sigh in spiritual release from a strived-for melodic peace. guitar in hand--- silence surrounding me my head can finally bow, my watery eyes can now close. I feel so moved. for I’ve journeyed to study the life art of reading, composing, & conducting the instruments that perform and create distinctive sounds I’ve had to learn to spiritually identify--without sheets of reference for even the most foreign echoes of noise. and my--- has my conductibility grown. I’ve grown to the clout of piano keys and can silence wrong oboes in tunes of tribulation; cellos on false judgment strings; even choirs of remorse whispering shame in 3-dimensional harmonization;

with just the wave of my hands. to achieve the most indescribable & implausible silence known to mana surround silence that awaits the commencement of my benediction alone in unison with my guitar in hand--- to perform the acoustic prayer. amen.
