SONG OF A SMALL COSMOLOGY
 
close by is a line of woodland stones
wearing a mantle green of moss
i sing to the solidity of these stone
 
dream01_400an awe-inspiring eagle is perched
toward top of a towering  cypress
i sing to the soaring flight of this eagle
i sing to the rooting of that cypress tree
 
a solitary gull sounding
crosses on wind-strokes over low sky-waters
and i sing with the hunger of this fisher-gull
 
waves of the Puget Sound, a
curling of wrap-around ocean
sing in their water-tone chorus
i sing with these salt-nymphs
of the Pacific Northwest, home
to spawning salmon and hunting orca
 
over crests of the Cascade Mountains
in dignity comes magnificent the Daybreak Star
through new day hours unfolding
this sky will burn shadowed to blueness
and pink-flame and dragonfly-gold
 
crests of those coastal mountains out there near to sunset
make passage through golden moments
i sing in finger painting of a sun-dripped rainbow
i sing to the summits of snow-white-gold
 
o powers thrust over dense emerald forest!!
 
i sing with this light out before me
i sing to the life of this place
i sing and i sing and i sing
 
what is dead inside is resurrected
what is dry within becomes moist
and from moisture the womb is made fertile
what is heavy plants downward into Earth caress
what is feather dreams a soul upward
into owls and osprey and angels
 
and i sing and i sing and i sing!
