Until Called Home



we are the clear blue waters
we are the roar of the waves
we are the clouds drifting by
we are the seagulls that fly
we are the swirling sands of time
we are the four seasons of a tree
we are the warmth of a noon sun
we are the creatures of the earth
we are the heartbeat of life
we are the  visitors in this place
we call home...

      Yes, we have been given a beautiful world to call home and we need to preserve mother earth if we are to survive 7 generations from now.

  15. " breath the blue in like water
    swirl and pearl daughters eve
    lilith too mad believes
    haste is waste, we laud her "

    I loved the, maestro with a baton, feel of this
    made me include a snippet of a poem I wrote
    sometimes in the late 80's
    when all I could think about
    was human beings being interlopers here ...

    thanks for sharing it and commenting on my blog too ... gratitude

  19. Beautiful ... I love the chant-like lyrical quality in this. You have a wonderful ability, in your writing, to imbue many of your pieces with an almost mythic aura. Your use of repetition is really masterful.
