Membranophones

Callers of the dawn
Wakers of the soul
They play into the night
A manifestation of power
It summons the deeper nature
in any living creature
and a minute can last an hour

Shimmering, glistening
and silent,
waiting
for the player.
They cry out, listening
and ready
for the first note
of their song.

Strike the drum
and feel its power,
hear the hum
as its hour
begins.

Can you not understand that
I am a part of it?
