The Sound of Ascension


I walk

to the beat of the floating drummer

suspended in air

the drum beats dance

clouds carry the sounds

from one state of mind to another

and reveal in the light

the same steps I take

steps over terrain

clouded with obstacles

placed just so

which move me

orchestrated beautifully

to bring me to

the next truth

the next layer

to be uncovered



I hear the rhythm

that plays a melody in my heart

and it feels right

every sound

mimics the reality

that is

and the words stack up

to create sentences

that speak from

an ephemeral timelessness

and create visions

of captivating beauty

which leave scars on my soul

and awareness for healing

the drum beats and I walk

each step has meaning

each event has purpose

every word is communicated with

knowing not sound

I feel the weightless noise

and I float with Angel guides

and I fly

to the beat


The Eternal Drummer

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. This piece had so much room in it for us to gather round and feel the wonder of it all, Lorrie. I love how you weave the rhythm of the floating, eternal drummer to the place of your foot steps around the obstacles of the earth walk– joining the worlds together. This is the essential human task, to hear the sky drummer and to carry the beat in our heart while we navigate the experience of form and presence.

    May the scars on your soul fade and disappear once the healing has completed.
