have you heard the sound of the sun

the sun spins compositions
the way stars shout
across vacuum–
electromagnetic spectra

that resonate under matter
we vibrate to
like struck tuning forks
but it is our substance

the metal in our bones
quiet bells sounding–
the earth sighs, too
& i have heard her voice

the lit chords
of borealis & australis
plucking subatomic strings
stretched taut

suggesting what does hold us
is not that mass to mass pull
of orbit, but a resonance
of matched scales past gravity

& into music

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I am amazed by your creativity …. awesome yet again !!!

  3. Hi Susan, lovely and thought provoking as usual. I’d think about whether you need the line “suggesting maybe” at all. It adds a sudden note of hesitation to a series of pretty confident assertions and kind of slows the momentum into a really stunning final verse and line. But maybe that’s just my reading, or maybe that’s something you want.

    Hi Sue, I’m with Paul. A strong, wide poem that wavers on the maybe. ‘Suggesting what holds us…’ as a line gives you 4 lines per stanza and removes the stutter.
    Lovely stuff though – the whole of creation as a single struck note, matter as the artefacts of this vibration… cosmic!
