Rare and Precious

She’s a gift you see
rare and precious
like wild grass
or heron in flight;
beyond imitation
and gemstone perfect.
I swear off disbelief
while she dresses,
the fullness of life
so unexpected
and practice like a child
on the impossible violin
amazed and delighted
over and again
by the appearance
of music.

    Don-This poem too is a rare and precious gem in which the words, the music, and its heartbeat deny any attempt to paraphrase it into meanings. It simply touches
    deep within you that which is unsayable.
