EARTH SONG (TANGKA)

 


EARTH SONG (TANGKA)

 

-         Meher Pestonji (India)

 

The

bird whistles

I whistle back

another replies with song

I mimic thesejoyful melodies

 

Melodious music fills the air

erratic rhythms, shrill tunes

strum against ear drum

making me

smile

 

Voices

intertwine to

float on breeze

to distant dancing trees

falling leaves waltzing with wind

 

Whirling leaves reach the ground

carpeting it rusty brown

crumbly crisp crackles

add musical

sounds

 

We

become three

birds, leaves, me

Nature’s creatures always free

making earth songs for everybody
