By George Wolfe
I began singing the moment
Set to the meters of heartbeats
Heard only when the ego sleeps.
I began singing before there
While time still slumbered between
the future and the past.
My drone is the first partial and
the endless curve of space.
Sing with me.
Close your eyes and lips
and follow my song
To its sacred source
Where sound and light dance
Beneath the golden rays of knowing,
Trying their best to awaken you
from history’s dream.
