Earth's Whisper



THE PASSION IN HER WHISPER

Only in a dream could this happen:

such terror that I have seen in eyes, and men abusing women,
and cries from the pores
of the sky.

So how to wake the sleeping?

I was once consumed in thought,
trying to make sense of a very unwanted experience,
when a bird's tune called to me from a
nearby limb.

And this brought me understanding, that audience with love,
and the way beauty can let us hold her
in mind and arms.

The passion in the earth's whisper
grew so loud
I woke.

Now I cannot deny
all is
He.

(Meister Eckhart)
