The sunset is ablaze
with vivid colours
which elude my hand,
the canvas still bare.
I glimpse the world with tear-filled eyes
The sky alive
with the power of the stars
sparkling down in brilliant washes of beauty.
And I remember...
Viridian forests of long ago
Living still within my heart
my life so out of time
my soul lost amidst the concrete trails of this world.
Yet, still I will remember...
In this heart
a story is singing
of memories of another time
where we honoured our place in this Unending Circle
Where the heartbeat of the Earth was cherished
where the drum echoed her heart with our own.
We must remember enchantment
Remember the mystery
Remember that which is not seen with eyes alone
or we are lost.
We must remember Truth
that we might be healed
that through each other
we might come to know ourselves.
Slowly the eternal beauty of this vision transforms my mind
And I realise that revealed on the canvas before me
is the epiphany of creation once again.
