Tell Me, She Said

Tell me, she said

What is the story you are telling?

What wild song is singing itself through you?

Listen:

In the silence beween there is music;

In the spaces between there is story.

It is the song you are living now,

It is the story of the place where you are.

It contains the shapes of these old mountains,

The green of the rhododentron leaves.

It is happening right now in your breath,

In your heart beat still

Drumming the deeper rhythm

Beneath your cracking words.

It matters what you did this morning

And last Saturday night

And last year,

Not because you are important

But because you are in it

And it is still moving,

We are all in this story together.

Listen:

In the silence between there is music

In the spaces between there is story.

Pay attention:

We are listening each other into being.
