Lightning flashes in a darkened sky And is gone again The sky remains, ready for another flash. Listen! to your soul’s song What you hear, you have heard before The flash is new—no repeated refrain Yet you recognize it at once, as an old friend. Listen! to a song of our planet Despairing voices in a dying world? The Dark is there truly. But another wind blows upon the waters A wind, a breath, a death … In dying there is life. Listen! to the quickening spirit That moves upon our land We are ready to understand Circles are forming, linking hand in hand We are seeking to be one … God’s will surely shall be done! The Transformation takes but an instant Listen! to your heart Be ready to do your part.
