Sharing in Song

Single bird sits perched upon a single branch.

Singing a single tune touched upon a single heart.

Joy, gladness.

Peace, Love.

Filling space upon a single space atop this single branch.

Lovely melody this single tune flowing from a single heart.

Flap, Flight.

Seeking, Perching.

Upon a foreign branch hearing a foreign tune.

A foreign bird sitting closely on a foreign branch.

Disruption, Turmoil.

Attuning, Deciphering.

Foreign shadow projected foreign past.

Foreign feelings but familiar from a foreign fowl.

Sing, Open.

Opening, Beaming.

Single bird sits perched upon a single branch.

Singing a single tune touched upon a single heart.

Joy, gladness.

Peace, Love.

Sharing space upon a single space atop this single branch.

Lovely melody this single tune flowing from a single heart to another.

Harmony, Comfort.

Singing, Sharing.

Familiar space familiar song.

Singing solo others sharing in song.

To See the Unseen

Out of misery

Tainted memories.

Painted by myriad of familial

Ancestral thought.

Accepting where we came from

Choosing forward step into what may be.

Unbeknownst to self

Not sight of what may be.

Sitting quietly in ‘being’

Allowing greenest of meadows to give birth.

Water of life,

Flows.

Breath of fresh air,

Wherever we step.

Out of fires,

We are born.

Into clear blue seas,

Bathing in purity for centuries to be.

What was unseen,

Shall now be seen.
