I Drum

I drum.

It is my heartbeat in celebration.
I chant.
It is my spirit in glory.
I am.
It is my soul in gratitude.

Drums sounding the pulse of the earth
Wild and passion filled waves of motion
Brush strokes holding to the moment
Color deep, vibrant, flaring free
A cadence divine
Held I willingly in its seize
Color and capture orchestrated
Frames of Mind, Opus 6.

  1. Hi Rose Marie:)


    Few simple words with profound meaning.

    I am greatly impressed with the words--CELEBRATION, GLORY AND GRATITUDE.

    We have to celebrate every moment of this amazing life, glorify God for giving us this wonderful gift of life and be eternally grateful to Him not only for this life but also for the beautiful world in which we live.

    Lovely colorful photo!

    Have a wonderful day Rose:)

    Beautiful emotions that match the painting so well! I love the fierceness of the painting - drumming is a great metaphor for the feelings.

    I'm leaving today. If God wills, I'll be back at the end of the month. Stay well.

  3. With Karen, I loved those opening lines... wonderful! I have posted some drumming and music today as well...

    ... and tell me Rose Marie, how DID you know to post that wonderful painting we first shared on this, my birthday? Thank you for your soul's knowing!

  4. Karen, Blessed in Joy be your travels.

    John, today we each have given a message of GRACE - spirit across time and space...

    Rene - YES is Red - and so on your Birthday in drumming celebration!
