Undersong

Those few--the critical few--that take real time
to pause eye-sealed and whittle-hear
life as is, snowflake clear--
the Awakened Ones, know why trees climb
for unreachable sky and sailor streams flow
as far as they're snail-able to go; how beneath the owl-wide gaze
of a cloud-wreathed moon, some profess whether seed, nest or stalk-raised
that Nature's nameless tones still play, inspire
even stone-deaf humanity to strive higher,
to improve step-by-step, note-by-moving-note
and let divined Truth take root, fur or flesh the coat
that will carry blood-cloaked words to a growing audience, styled
to appeal to both tame and wild
even if other senses sleep the aural chorus
leaf, limb, petal and maestro wind continue to compose, feel for us
deep-urged in their own light-scaled way
until unveiled some distant dew-laced day
that sun, moon, space, earth, water, stone and tree
contain soul-stirring refrains that we're all parts of one Wholehearted melody.
