REACHING TOWARD THE MILLET FIELDS

 

It was beautiful,

It was so beautiful one night

 

We all began expecting to hear

God speak

 

In the waves reaching toward

The millet fields,

 

From the mouths of the hanging sky-ornaments

Crooning in light's intimate codes,

 

From the glances of plants and children

Playing with effulgent love.

 

Existence was so beautiful one night

We all began to expect

Our Beloved would

Speak

 

At the height of our wing's senses

That were stunned

Trying to comprehend the divine

Through the tiny organic

Filters,

 

That were stunned in glimpsing the reality

Of the thousand miraculous components

Of each moment

And step.

 

But we can't,

We can't yet hear God whistling inside,

So we weep.

 

We will all weep in some way

Until we

Do.
