Heaven's Orchestra 2: Another collection of angel-inspired musical instrument acrostic poems
Listen to the sound of angels playing harps from above
Sound the horns
Thanks everyone for commenting and shared on my acrostic poems. Much obliged with a warm smile, here’s another selection from that chapbook to share with you, when I wrote them a decade ago, after my grandfather died. You might be surprised that one of them was previously published with an asterisk by the title. I have more to come and share this fall. Enjoy!
Relax with the tropical beat of timpani drums
Alto Saxophone and Timpani
Angels rejoice to R&B and jazz sounds of music,
Lifts us up to a tune of smooth melody,
Touches our heart with a meeting of a rich rhythm,
Original notes of an universal harmony in twilight.
Soft accompaniment of violins, cellos and oboes,
Angels sway to the songs of God’s praise,
Xylem float and sink to the bottom of ocean floors,
Omnipotence collaboration with voice and piano,
Perhaps with soprano sax, horns, tubas and trombones,
Heaven’s healing is the cure of a new arrival,
Over a layer of good versus evil souls,
Now powerful than ever against Hell through notes,
Eternity winning every battle with jazz on Judgement Day.
Thunderous percussion sound hits home,
Inches away from lightning, but touches our heart,
Melts the anger down to the ground with metal kettledrums,
Promises of a rich new beginning with mallets,
Angels strike evil with Zeus’s trident,
Never let God’s angels befall to the devil,
Impure thoughts of deceit fades away.
Decorate your home with musical angel figurines to let you unwind and decompress
Electric Piano and Clarinet
Eternity brings forth peace and immortality.
Love is spread out with electric beat,
Ethereal beings play a song in God’s ebony originality,
Calmness is made and is forever complete,
Tender notes brings glory and triumph fought,
Reaches out the power of goodness with ivory in every thought,
Impossible discretions discarded in a pile,
Clamps down on suffocation of piano keys by bad bile.
Priceless symphonic melody is heard everyday,
Invisible fancy fingers is played in every way,
Angelic orchestrations with electric shock waves,
Never loses, with each soul it saves,
Only good vibrations will be hear to stay.
Clouds repel like a ladder of brass or rope,
Lassos like an angelic cowpoke, not dope,
Angels love the sound this instrument makes,
Rights the wrongs on humanity’s mistakes,
Ill thoughts of hatred through notes is wiped away clean,
New decisions are ready-made and pristine,
Eternity enters to a new heartbeat,
Triumphant saintly soulful lives are complete.
Hear the calming presence of steel drums send you away to the islands
Steel Drum and Reed Organ
Secular music hit the skies by steel,
Touching us deeply makes it real,
Eases us to a calm enlightening appeal,
Elevates the moods for a good peaceful feel,
Longevity in our life by a grand eternal deal.
Dreams drift into a good and sweet sleep,
Ready-made visions is what we must keep,
Underneath it all, it goes even more deep,
Music from tropical Heaven doesn’t creep.
Reed Organ **
Realms of moonbeams mixes with the sun rays,
Eternal deep notes from this organ is secular on Sundays,
Everyone sings to a hymn or a psalm,
Doubt is erased to a wave of notes from reeds to a slow calm.
Only heard at church for celebration, service or Mass,
Relief has reached us, when the moment will pass,
Givings of joy, peace, harmony, happiness and love,
Angels sing along to a percussionist above,
Nature sends a cue to release a dove.
Acoustic Bass and Rock Guitar
Angels feel so much at peace and ease with strumming strings,
Calmness and meditation is a release of bad energy,
Opening our heart to free our soul to Eden,
Usually helps to keep it under control, evenly,
Sends shivers up and down our spine, rich in vibes,
Tender thoughts of two hearts in one combine,
Incredible tremors of Heaven’s twilight,
Coos our fears, vanishes nightmares and fright.
Blending Heaven and Earth by strings as only one,
Angelic love can be complete by harmony and done,
Smooth sounds from this percussion notes,
Soars good news as our hope floats.
Rhythm sets the mood with a tune,
Organic melody begins here soon,
Calmness blended in with an angelic symphony,
Kisses you with love, and hugs the universe in peaceful ecstasy.
Graceful hands pluck strings with a pick,
Unique powerful sounds from an amp with a kick,
Intoxication of rock-and-roll with a fast beat,
Turbo-charged loud notes spread out to be complete,
Angels sing along with God’s harmonious song,
Ready or not, Karaoke in His kingdom isn’t wrong.
