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.
