I hear a beckoning sound (a poem)

An ekphrastic poem, inspired by Brian Eno’s ‘Discreet Music’.

It doesn’t know it yet
but it is calling me

The voice is far off
but as familiar as home
the way I used to remember it

On this hardest of days
when the world has worn me down
it makes me feel safe

It doesn’t know it yet
but it is calling me

I am coming home
