If Nature Was My Orchestra: The Evening Sun

a tree’s reflection
sparkles over the river
in the setting sun

Let’s see… I grew up with the The Who, The Beatles and The Dave Clark 5; I absolutely love Charles Ives, Dave Brubeck, Howard Shore, and Lalo Schifrin to name a very few of my influences. Did I mention that Vibraphone to me is like drums were to Keith Moon?

If Nature Was My Orchestra: Rain Torrent

falling.
undisturbed by day or night,

sun, or moon, or stars.
peaceful pounding,

sweetly drowning out the noise.

If Nature Was My Orchestra: The Morning Moon

 

morning moon is high
never sleeping through the night
bringing in the day

If Nature Was My Orchestra: Earth, Wind & Rain

softly it began
wandering through elements
breath turned in to life

If Nature Was My Orchestra: When The Wind Chimes

when the wind chimes,
there is a stop, there is a listen
in the air

there is music poised to play,
but stillness holds it close
until it is taken away
by the wandering breeze
