THE TREE OF LIFE - RAINE CAROSIN

Poetry By: Raine Carosin
Other



I stumbled upon Solvin Refvik's music while browsing youtube, and fell in love with one of his music pieces called PASSION and wrote lyrics for it. He then offered me some of his other musical pieces to see if I could be further inspired. I used his song CHIMES and wrote the poem THE TREE OF LIFE. I was unable to do the narrative so I asked Graeme Robertson (VORTEXIA) to do it for us, and he came through BRILLIANTLY, as you can hear in the mp3 of him reciting the poem... You can hear the music and see the video I made of the song/poem at youtube: http://youtu.be/XKWnLhYWCyM

CHIMES
THE TREE OF LIFE
By RAINE CAROSIN
I'm melting into my ancestors
Watching my blood branch out
To the tender youth of young buds
Mirrored deep in the thick mud
Where wisdom guides thirsty roots
To nurture the fruit and nut of the gods
Writ in my skin is the name of my Father
Before the seed and the light
Inspiring terror and delight
To those in fright or flight
The great slumber of the bulk of me
As I bend in my bough
Breathes me here and there
And moves me in dreams
Through wombs and tombs in misty hollowness
Listen to the ancient echoes
Timelessly moulding words of love
For the fallen and the stolen
And lie bent in your bough
Watching your life grow
Living long and alive
Watching the young buds leave
The Maker moves seeds whence He will
Above and below, mirrored, yet melting - but for time
