Listen to Creation

Listen to creation
The heartbeat of
The earth as
She awakens slowly
In the morning’s cool mist.
Listen to creation
As the butterfly
Sheds its chrysalis
The moments in between
Creation and flight.
Open your ears and
Hear earth’s heartbeat
Feel her pulse
In the morning’s awakening,
Before the sun
Begins to blaze in
The sky
Feel the pauses
In between the moments
Of the morning’s cool mist
The space between the heartbeat.
