Highlighted Poems from Songs of Inspiration: Tunnel of Music and Solitude

My garden is like a sanctuary to me. I love to have my morning coffee in the garden, walking around to appreciate the flowers, plants and the hummingbirds. A baby hummingbird was born in my garden in June 2018. He spent the winter in my garden while the parents flew south for several week. The moments of being with the nature near and far touch deep in my heart and soul, and my love of music also inspires the flow of my thoughts and words.

Day 7. Tunnel of Music

Tunnel of Music


Tunnel of music, my great hideout,

surrounded by melodic sounds.

It speaks of my unspoken language,

sounds out my unspeakable profound,

carries me to cloud nine,

wings my spirit high,

laments the deep sorrow,

echoes in my heart’s hollow,

speaks for my heartbreak,

clashes my entangled struggle,

dances for the joyous chance,

drums to my rhythmic victory,

waves my dreamy fantasy,

serenades my romantic love.

My symphony,

my empathy,

my company.






Everywhere, I hear noises and voices,

I quickly answer and respond.

Every day, I receive demands and comments,

I rush to comply and improvise.

Every hour, I see needs and pleas,

I passionately lend my ears.

The momentum is like a snowball,

where to stop, no idea at all.

Once in a while, I unplug myself

to be away from the

noises and voices,

demands and comments,

needs and pleas,

and land myself in solitude,

where I could attend my voice and

the voice from above, to

reacquaint my inner self,

refresh my private thoughts,

re-lubricate my soul,

rejuvenate my energy,

reignite my spirit, so to

return to the world, and

be of better service.

  1. I’ve enjoyed your tour Miriam and poetry! I enjoy the hummingbirds in my garden, too. Such beautiful and fascinating creatures. Thanks for hosting Patricia!


  2. I studied music, I lived music, I taught music and I loved music, but I walked away from it all. Circumstances of life took music away from me but they cannot kill the music in my heart! 😍 Thank you, Patricia, for hosting.

    • Hi Joy, nothing can kill the music in your heart. When I had cancer and couldn’t sing for years, I thought I lost it. But my voice came back and I’ve been singing Messiah for five years and counting.

      I would love to learn more about what happened to you that took music away from you. I visited your blog and now will go back to follow you.

      Thank you, Patricia again for hosting my tour. ❤


  3. So Miriam, the baby hummingbird was able to survive the winter because of the climate there? I’ve only been to California twice in my life, so don’t know the weather patterns there. I apologize for being so late on the tour. Thank you Patricia for hosting on a nice looking blog. I love the colors.

    • Our winter is short, but it has been the longest ever since I came to CA in 1980. The baby hummingbird is right months old. The first year of the hummingbird, it can’t fly that far away to Mexico. The migrating hummingbirds fly 800 – 900 miles nonstop, well, only stop enough to get some nectar then keep going.Since the winter in CA is short, the papa bird was gone for 3 weeks and the mama bird came back 3 days after that.

  4. Hi Patricia, I want to thank you again for hosting my blog tour. I followed up the tour with free download promo on Amazon and got #3 of the Top Best Sellers in Poetry. I have 5 more hours for the promo but I’m happy with #3. I’ll make an announcement on my blog but want to thank you personally!
