JOINED

Heart beat of man pounding - yet
unheard joined becomes the beat of a nation.

Words of man written - yet
unread joined becomes a proclamation.

Sounds of man spoken - yet
unheard joined becomes a production .

Lines of man drawn - yet
unrecognized joined becomes an illustration.

Beings of man humming - yet
forgotten joined becomes a celebration.

Patterns of man created - yet
invisible joined becomes a new universe.

Joined we become recognized.
