This is a letter to the creatures,
all of you who share this space:
Robins and Wrens,
cattle and cats,
coyotes singing in the night.
I know you know more than I know
about the rhythms of the earth.
I am paying attention now,
trying to listen, to understand.
I appreciate your taking the time.
Sing me into wakefulness,
Teach me to sing that oldest of songs
with the voices which surround,
and let the singing be enough.
Let the singing be enough.
