The Silent Flute
by Peter Paton

Saturday, July 09, 2005

The golden sun rises over an unbroken sky
soaring condors ride the thermals
and a chipmunk scurries from out of the undergrowth
and my heart settles
on what is to come
sensing the delivery
of the hand of fate

torrid heat and gentle zephyrs
glide across my skin
feeling remote and distant
inside the tabernacle
between soul and mind
all is relevant
every single thing counts

the touch of love
is without any equal
gilded lips of eternal bliss
soft the leaves rustle
within the canyon
lost so deep
in your mirrors of attraction

i came to you
and answered your clarion call
taught you the answers
that you had always sought
gave you the tools
to meet any task
seldom given
seldom asked

I am there for you
within the frame of
dimensional concepts
star filled skies
lightening flash
flowing rivers
sunburst flowers
misty eyes
hooting owls
chirping crickets
howling coyotes
croaking frogs
passionate persistence
bonds you and I

The Silent Flute

A holiness I felt reading these words put in such a beautiful art form! Vivid pictures I am seeing in my mind and hearing the sounds from your words written. Omniscient...God eternal Spirit!

Deeply moved!

Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.
Reviewed by Victoria's Poetry & Voices of Muse 7/14/2012
your image is gorgeous, I hope to see this in person someday
and into your beautiful poetic offering transports me there
but too I feel as though I have been spoken to by God
& that is very amazing to say the least!

Peter, "The Silent Flute" is stunning.
As a reader, and admirer of your work I felt myself soaring.
I was there stanza after stanza filled with the lush imageries you shared.
Although not mentioned my mind also felt emotional textiles too, however as an artist you painted vivid colors against my memory.

Thank you, I consider this a bold, and powerful work of art,
