A poem I wrote while taking a break on the trail yesterday when I went mountain biking.
What message does your soul send
when in stillness you listen to the leaves
as they dance in the wind?
Rest stretched out on the earth
with your palms upon Her skin.
Can you hear Her heartbeat as it beats within?
Sit quietly beside the running stream
and hear Her melodies played freely,
to bless body and soul so sweetly.
What once dormant rises within
while staring into the flames of fire ?
A fierce, urgent, primal desire?
The elements speak, for each one to hear
through the ineffable Spirit.
Hear them, loud and crystal clear
