Ghosts and echoes
Did you see the horizon?
A light so bright it shone forever.
True power, true magnificence.
Did you feel the trees blow in the wind?
How misty was the shroud,
Which was lifted.
Did you feel the vibration in your feet?
As the ground shook and trembled’
I walked into nothing.
A pale blue ocean lay before me.
Vast, powerful, seething, looming,
A distant adventure called out my name.
A mountain, so tall it touched the sky.
Did you see it?
White topped with icy purity.
A current flows from Earth to heart.
A love inspires in the dark.
Natures calling, listen, hark.
Have you felt the touch of sand beneath your feet?
Wet and dry, the sensation carries,
Joy and comfort.
Have you felt the wash pass over your aching feet?
As you walk out into your adventure,
Towards the shiny, new horizon.
Did you feel the wind blow through your heart?
From sky to Earth to inside every life.
To clear and cleanse and clean and free.
My ancestors watch me.
In the quiet of the dawn they kiss my cheek.
Golden light upon me.
Oh ghosts and echoes have you heard my voice?
I call to you for only you will listen,
To the ever increasing madness of my mind.
