Day 21 – OctPoWriMo – Gaia’s Call

Today’s prompt for OctPoWriMo, Nature’s Calling, spoke so deeply to me and follows what has seemed to become my theme of late. The form is a Terzanelle – challenging to be sure. So, here is Gaia’s Call

Gaia’s Call

Sitting on the cool rise of a hill

Soft breezes drift through grasses once still

Sitting on the cool rise of a hill.

As sounds call from the birds’ trill

Sighs of remembrance of a time long ago

Give way to a pause, thoughts become still.

From a melody deep within the earth’s womb

An ancient song rises from the waiting souls

Still yearning for release from a weary tomb.

Silent tears from another time and place

Trickle down my cheek wetting cool grass green,

Finding their way to a holy sacred space.

Joining in this ancestral dance of old,

I rise to the song of Gaia’s sweet tune,

I sing to the rhythm of stories untold

And rest in the green cool arms of repose.

Sitting on the cool rise of a hill,

My spirits lift, my weariness arose

Sitting on the cool rise of a hill.
