A River of Music – a poem

A River of Music


There’s a river of music

Flowing through our minds

Connecting us.

With tendrils of sound,

Rivulets of notes,

Waterfalls of words,

Joining us,

To create a an orchestra

Of unification.


As our spirits sing together

The melody becomes a spectrum

Of all our experience;

Of love, hate and anger,

Spirituality and ideals,

Entwined with politics

And freedom.


Within the harmony

Lies the gamut of emotion,

A lexicon of thought,

And descant of feeling.


The whole universe

Cascades in a symphony

To a sea

Of intimate meaning,

An ocean of oneness,

That is the music

Of life.


Opher – 17.8.2019



I find music sustaining. It expresses every thought and emotion I feel, crosses cultures and speaks directly to the spirit within.

It is the most ancient and fundamental aspect of humanity.

Anyone who denies music denies life.
