Words For Wednesday – Soaring

Greetings, my little chickadees! I just spent a week in Santa Fe (which is why there was no entry last week), and have been immersed in southwestern style art, food, and literature. One of my purchases was a small volume entitled “Native American Wisdom” which contained this lovely piece by Chief Dan George.

My Heart Soars

The beauty of the trees,
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass
speaks to me.

The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
the rhythm of the sea,
speaks to me.

The faintness of the stars,
the freshness of the morning,
the dewdrop of the flower,
speaks to me.

The strength of fire,
the taste of salmon,
the trail of the sun,
And the life that never goes away,
they speak to me.

And my heart soars.
