and then they sang



patience beloved one
the world dreamed our dreaming
of the world into being.
waited while we slept
and drifted and dreamed
formless in the light.
waited until we rose
walking our butterfly wing fragility
into the world.
watched, breath held,
while our wings tore
and our hearts broke
open to the sky,
until all there was
was sky
and heart
and the iridescent dust of wings
falling like rain where the forests grew.
and still we came on limbs new formed
walking the world we dreamed into being.
walking until we became the dust
under our own feet.

it is so close now
beloved one
we are the song
that wakes us.
