The Drum of Life

Updated on February 27, 2012

Me with my teacher's (Sele) drum. | Source

Boom, boom.

Rhythmic bounces of

Hands falling on tight skin covered vessels

In time

In space

Boom, boom.

Our first sounds

Humans magnetically drawn

To beats reminiscent of mother’s heart beat in womb

Boom, boom

Hypnotizing

Lost in the heart throbs

In a moment of oneness

In group we become one

One sound.

Boom, boom.

When lost return

To the first sound

Boom, boom.

      I really liked this. The drum sound, the heart beat in the Mother's womb. Beautiful....

      Nice poem. I really enjoyed reading this, and I agree with always exploring, comparing the drum sound to the hear beat of the Mother's womb is absolutely beautiful.

      Thanks always exploring. I believe that rhythms connect us as humans. Since it is what we have all started life with!

      Thanks for reading and commenting savanahl.

      I love the sound of boom boom, but only from a drum origination and not from any other methods, because drums are the organic true vibes of music. These machines today create such generic sounds its so cluttered and messy.

      Beautiful poetry KrystalD & I like the little drum lesson at the end. Nice! Voted up! Oh and awesome photo of that cute kid too.
