Song-Flower

Song-Flower

In the garden of the heart
rests a pure white lily
floating on the waters of life
once it was a bud tight-closed
secret and sleeping
long-shadowed before dawn
until a call from deep silence
rippled its petal-tips
shyly they opened, not quite trusting
beneath the rays of a golden sun
now as each petal spreads
tongues of light send warmth
to its core, awaking
its bloom-song to nectar-tones
it did not imagine, yet dreamed
as ephemeral sounds
geometric wisps, clues in slumber
waiting for the low, sweet voice
of Love, eternal birdsong’s hum
until this lily opens wide 
petals like arms spread 
to catch each ray and dripping note 
exquisitely poised, song welling
its lyrics whisper ~ water holds light
love is ever-life ~ life is ever-love
rocked in its cradle, petals sway
calling out to each heart ~
you are mother’s flower
you are heaven’s song
you are divinity’s lover
you are father’s son
in the garden of the heart
colours kiss sighs to a pure white lily
beneath the rays of a golden sun
