There is a song that binds us all
Connecting as if we’re one
A familiar haunting, lilting tune
Mystery music stopped too soon

Tell me again, the story
Of a rose of music
Gift by way of nature
From our blessed Creator

Set free to bring hope
To encourage and uplift
Banishing sadness or dispair
With a simple, soft melody

Zipping through the air
Riding every current
Flying on strong wings
Is this nameless song

Deep into this earth
Engrained into the dirt
Singing joyfully always
This mystery melody

Cavorting through flame
Reds, Yellows and Orange
Such a wild, fiery dance
Is a daring way to fame

Reverberating off stone
A welcome gray expanse
Outside smooth, inside rough
Finding this name is difficult

Whisper through the wood
Never mind the underbrush
Sing loud, invisible voice
Commit these words to memory

This is life
A wonderful gift
Your life you live
For God is love

Swim through the skies
To star-filled worlds
Play the tunes
Of peace and harmony

Glide to colorful heights
Know the simple beauty
Feel it, understand it
Don’t try to judge it
This nameless, wandering melody

the song of God cannot be repressed! Thank you for reminding us of this wonderful truth!

You have some beautiful images here - thanks so much for sharing!!

Your words are beautiful and I enjoyed reading your poem very much. However, you started out with rhymed poetry and then after a few stanzas moved into more free verse poetry. You did both really well, but typically they aren't mixed into one poem. If you work on sticking to one form at a time, I'm sure you will score well with both the judges and readers alike. Your poem as is, is still quite lovely.

You're definitely on the right track with your poetry! I agree about sticking with one style throughout. You do both well, so that shouldn't be a problem!Keep writing!

What a sweet poem. I felt like a was a fairy, fliting here and there. Descriptions and word choices were very well done. :) Blessings.

Swim through the skies
To star-filled worlds

This is what put me in the mind-set of Peter Pan and tinkerbell. I do not understand how you're still in beginners. This is wonderful and light. I really enjoyed it.

God's melody. Moving poetry.
