Place of Song

I am planting my third seed
Rooting my soul deep in this place
Aligning with the four corners
Reaching to the heavens and stars with hope
Lifting my gaze towards the sunrise
Basking in the quiet magic of the gloaming

As is my nature I seek …
The sweet sharpness of running water over rocks
The quiet eddies and raging rivers
To glide in lakes known and not
To dip a paddle in deep water
To dance in the wet sparkles and laughter of waterfalls
To feel ocean waves caress

To weave new memories with old
To smell the pine, sage and loam of this earth
To seek breathtaking vistas from mountain tops
To stand among the hum and jabber of bird song
The pregnant silence of the quiet

To dance on notes of the wind
To ride in the slipstream
To hear a hawk cry
To behold the majesty of an eagle watching sentry
To feel the wind break across and through me
To delve into and up mountain passes
To meander along roads near and far
Known and unknown
With others

To dream, hope and create …
Stories of a life filled with love and laughter
Of time spent at tables filled with food and wine
With those I know and those not yet met

That my life song be filled with  …
Laughter and love

This is my dream …
