Clouds smooth the turbulent waves in the sky

My heart is an ocean that rises

The land is an undiscovered depth

The sun and moon guide the intensity of my emotion

The stars mark my passions

The night is my serenity

All that surrounds me is familiar in its unknown

Our Mother is surrounded by the unfamiliar of the known

 

A stream of smoke carries a sweet scent

Even without a wind, the leaves can play a tune

I live within a music box

Its people dance to one song divided into many symphonies

I am one heart divided into many passions

 

Drift across the ocean that floats in the sky

Tumble to the great depths of the land below

There is richness in the soil

Destitution in our possessions

Loneliness in want

Contentment in the self
