STANDING TOGETHER

 

The song of a solitary bird

High, clear and beautiful

Pierces the early morning

Alone

It enters my widow

Alone

It enters my mind

As a gust of wind

Buffeting down a desolate canyon

Filled

With alpine flowers

Granite boulders

Granite chips

Green and red sprouts of new life

All embraced by the empty sky

A song of untold beauty

A solitary song

The essence

Of everything

The key

To all

A solitary song

The essence

Of clarity

The true essence

Of pure love

 

She is here

Alone

We are here

Together

Listening

Silently

Standing

Together

Solitary birds

 

Always sing

In the early morning
