THIS SONG WHICH NEVER ENDS

 

Such words, poetry rare

Exulting reality

Into voice           Expression

Into being

Being       into form.

From out of ashes

Out of seasons

Years time and reason

And from out of every man

Woman born

Conceived.

All truths   shadows   And all loves

Destructions and voices

Perceived

Complete and thus returning

Like Angels

Like Gods

Again to tell their stories

Or to tell the tale

The myth, the verse or the prayer

The hymn manifested

Again

For here is your

Hero

Your villain

And your Goddess renewing

The world

And here is your song:

Their song

Our song

All songs

Beginning &

Then ending again

These poems and these words

A dance     A waltz

These songs remaining, returning

Like every prophecy foretold in

The past   The present  & The future

Born from

Every sun

Every star

Every moon

And every daughter

Within every universe

Contained.

For this place, world

Is a universe made up

Of dust & words, language

And resurrections

Hello

Goodbye

Farewell

Love

Death

And sorrows

Vision.

Such words, such voices

Poetry rare

Exulting reality beyond

A human heart

So human, so frail

This song which never ends.
