Singing in the earth
I heard singing in the earth this morning
and a song among the fluttering leaves,
the scarlet sky was full of music.
I thought I was born into a new world
as I stepped out on a trail to the sea.
the sea was alight with a fire of gold,
the waves chanting song towards the land
singing a message of dear pristine love,
birds dipped and soared in musical notes.
I was seeking a new world today.
I turned back home to my customary life
but the roses trembled in the sunlight
while gulls dipped and a melody soared.
what is this sense of an unknown world?
I asked the lark, I asked the rushing wind.
a new world comes sang the prescient bird,
a new earth arises the soulful wind sang.
in the green grass an advent I heard then
a song of renewal, a music of destiny.
it was earth’s own pure voice,
the bright music of birth.
