being (the herald)

Inspired by the phrase ‘The feeling of health, the full-noon trill’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

I rise up

comes the dawn

it heralds me
herald the day

and as the grey
and the green enlivens

the sun shines golden
new light

there is a feeling
of wellness

of health
that is the cycle
of being
once again

and I sing
along with a magpie
the noon day trill

we sing along
with each other
and between us two
the day must know
that it is being

that we
are being

and that heralds
the best feeling
that I know
