The Rhythm of Starlight
the stars have a rhythm when they twinkle
have you noticed?
if we could hear them, what would they sound like?
what melody are they playing?
does each constellation have their own song?
if so, the night sky must be a symphony
playing for the angels
a choir of voices singing multitudes of songs
never before heard
never before imagined
if I could just get closer, maybe I could hear them
or maybe I’ve been hearing them all along
maybe it’s the music in my head
in the background
that my thoughts beat to
that I’ve never paid attention to
because I’m thinking
and never listening.
