Drum Circle

We sat in a circle, these 10 strangers and I, holding the drums the leader provided for us.

boom – boom – boom – boom

The beat started low and steady as we all found our rhythm, our hands getting used to the instrument, to the sound we hear, and to the sound we internalized.

boom – boom – boom – boom

The shy man, the elderly woman, the loving mom and her two kids, the married couple, the healer, the drum leader, and the soul searcher.  Each us were beating the the drums to the music we heard, and we eventually fell into a rhythm that echoed our heart beats.

boom – boom – boom – boom

Eyes closed and  heart open.  We played softly, we played loudly, we played played for each other, we played for ourselves.

boom – boom – boom – boom
