“Relation is how spirit becomes manifest. (Cowbirds and robins and geese are here for this)”~My notes during yesterday’s Evolutionary Relationships Zoom meeting with 20K people.)
We who dig into the roots now rise
—first, of course, self-regulate,
surprise each moment as our biosphere
becomes clear and we create
sing-praise the body electric
from microscopic molecule to planetary
thrumming and beyond, zing
past what we conceived as separate
and scary, drop objective reality
in connection commune
the symphony the masterpiece
each voice in tune
in ways we never could perceive
until we breathe
in this precious now
the beat emerges sweet and how.
Inspired by Wrangle, Safety, Surprise, Perspicacity, Curve and the dversepoets prompt, where Björn asks us to write how things will appear on the other side of the current “pandemic.” Featured image of last night’s pink moon filling my night sky.
And deep appreciation for Walt Whitman’s love poem, I Sing The Body Electric.
