Listen

There's a glorious song
Weaving through all Nature
Listen close
You'll hear it.

The stars
scattered, sprinkled
across the deep rolling blue
of the night sky,
singing
voices clear and high
like silver light upon the ear
twinkling melodies
glimmering
glinting
Listen close
You'll hear it.

The trees
swaying gently, waving
branches, rustling leaves
of emerald green
singing
voices clear and strong
harmonies intertwining
like tendrils on a growing vine
glowing
gleaming
Listen close
You'll hear it.

The ocean
tossing waves, crashing
against the mossy cracked rock
of faded grey
singing
voices clear and rippling
like swirling frothing sea-foam
soothing lullabies
shimmering
streaking
Listen close
You'll hear it.

The sun
rising, setting
in golden sweeping swathes of fire
cast across billowing clouds
singing
voices clear and burning
dancing rhythms
like snapping, cracking sparks
flaming
flashing
Listen close
You'll hear it.

In the cry of the seagull
the gust of the wind
the wolf's mournful howl
the moon's pale rays
the snow-peaked mountains
There's a glorious song
Weaving through all Nature
Listen close
you'll hear it--

Then sing along.
