of grace saved and
the light sheltering
earth the way the elements
are combined in mystery
like blurred echoes remembering
music we have never heard before
Music of the spheres they call it
like the mind contains mirrors that
are reflecting vibrating
earth as it moves around
the cosmic wheel part
of no known time
sounds that hold
It’s hard to know what to say anymore about people killing people.
Friday, after listening to James Taylor’s beautiful version of “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” I started thinking about the line “all the sounds of the earth are like music”, and the musical “Oklahoma” in general. Beginning with the hope in that song, the musical runs the gamut of human behavior and emotion. As nature holds all kinds of music in both its wonder and terror.
I’ve been wanting to do some more responses to all Nina’s amazing mandalas, and I reached back to one I previously referenced in a darker way. Darkness/light: intertwined. Love or war? We can choose. Let’s come together, not apart.
