Lightning in the Dark

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.
