the drums are beating…………i hear them from afar and they draw me in.

as i walk i try to hide myself from its pull

the beats, like my heart, give life to all that is around it

i creep closer……….the drum is under the open sky

i search for people………no one is there,

the drum is beating on its own

calling out to those who need to hear it, it draws us in……….

people begin encircling the drum from all directions- walking out of the darkness

searching for their own beating heart

    • Thank you so much Sue……..you always have such kind and thoughtful words……..yes, I believe in the healing power of vibration and I also have a drum……….now I need to make myself play it!


  2. Dearest Wendi, I came back to this Drum post for a reason.. I admire your inner courage so very much my friend.. While I no longer accept Blog awards, I made one myself a few years ago to give out to those whom I think are deserving and special,
    You dear friend I see are special, I hope you will accept and pass along to other deserving people who meet the short poems goals..
    Love and Light dear friend and here is your Hearts As One Drumbeat Award
    https://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/awards-hearts-as-one-drumbeat-award/ Please feel free to upload the Drum. It was a drum that was made by a friend and I painted it .. and made the stick..
    Love and Blessings Sue
