Waves, Rain and Wind chimes!



Music of sea waves
Can cease the chatter of mind
Ebb the anxiety;
Symphony that motivates
A soul weary of living.


Melody of rain
Can spray romance in a heart
Weave colorful dreams;
Nostalgic minutes
Bring back moments of  passion.

Music of wind chimes
A euphoric harmony
Makes you laugh and dance;
You open your arms to life
With all your mind, heart and soul.
