Hidden Melody

Fiery sunsets dissolve—
Earth is shrouded in navy.
Crickets twitter and hum,
paint the stars electric.

This is freeze-frame life;
This is invisible beauty.

Children giggle and squeal
as fireworks lace the air with smoke.
Tongues tamper with popsicle-slush,
tints of ruby and blue.

This is freeze-frame life;
This is invisible beauty.

We count our blessings like cash,
collect them in lintfilled pockets—
We never notice:
leaf crunch,
bird chirp,
water ripple,
and the rich earth-aroma…

but this is freeze-frame life;
This is invisible beauty—

The world is in song;
We don’t know the lyrics.
