Sound of Soul

Can you hear the sound
of souls now stirring restlessly
upon the windů?

They speak in feelings
rising up inside
emotion sometimes calm
yet sometimes wild and free
crying out to be, just be

Soul's expression
seeking a reality more dense
to move invisibly by sense
and sight and sound
from the ethereal
into the sacred ground
of life

It comes to us at times
as instinct old and wise
to defend the innocence
found in the heart
but then at times it also sighs
in gentleness
a soft release of breath
to soothe and thus refresh
our solitude

Soul, as stars in night sky burn
in rays of color that return
a healing energy
to all who take the time to see
this vast reality for what it is

Spirit that outshines the night
a fire born of some great spark
exciting cells too long denied
to live and breathe and move inside
these patterns we've become

Can you hear the rhythm speaking?
incessant beat of drums now seeking
expression of the soul

Can one know love
without the raging fire?
Can one create
without desire?

Can you hear the sound
of souls now stirring restlessly
upon the wind...?
