This morning I paused….
Slowed down my thoughts enough
To overcome my deafness,
Heard the echo further down,
Saw a splendor waiting at my feet,
Smelled divinity in scented breeze,
The light from sun charged with glory—
Glorious like a circle burning in the air,
Enlarging, dispersing, renewing all around
Until the sky appeared a deeper blue and
Evergreens a deeper green and
I was summoned from sleep
By music, splendid music surrounding,
Invisible, far off and forever close.
