drumming

there is a drumming,
you are near it
little drummer,
can you hear it?

a crack crack craking
marking seasons and days

a march march marching
noting movement and growing ways

a thrum thrum thruming
crescendoing in passions, love and war

a pound pound poudning
wanting you to open up your door

a beat beat beating
keeping pace with the arc of justice

a thump thump thumping
weighing the space between scarcity and surplus

do you hear the drum, it’s drumming
the gentle time keeper, nothing new

do you hear the drum, it’s thrumming
like a hallowed guitar with melody too

do you hear the drum, it’s beating
in the center of your chest

do you hear the drum, retreating
inviting you to join a parade with all the rest
