A Song – Esther

Nature sings me a song

The fountain of water goes bubble babble

The leaves on the trees go filter flutter

Sure, the tree trunks blow the trumpet

But the leaves on the floor go crunch crunch

Stepped on like fallen soldiers in battle

My hand swaying in the water, I feel the rhythm.

Look around and I see the unspoken lyrics

pennies at the bottom of the fountain of untold wishes.

Sit on the green grass

No need for the noisy streets

Or stubborn kids, crying kids

Come here where it’s all part of the song

Ignore the tune is what I wouldn’t do

Come over here. Join me and enjoy the view

Make memories you wouldn’t want to let go off

Trust me it’s the sound of healing

No need for disturbing sirens

Just stay under her loud silence

The healing process of the musical forest

A sound I wish forever to last

And not be disturbed by constructions and buildings

Restore the free peace that everyone can share

And not the hard material that gives us all a glare.
