the song


one cold night
frost and wind
worked their way
inside a tiny hairline fracture
and separated these two
portions
of rock

~

the pine needles
gathered in and around
and the moss
threaded its way
across the space
frond by frond
until once more
the two were connected
as intimately
as one


and the
humming of the earth
and the whispering of the sky

the singing of the birds
and the chattering of the little animals
was the music
that sang the song
of their love

Your imagination so beautifies my geological 'freeze/thaw action'.
Wonderful image too.

This reminds me of Rilke. Gorgeous verse in every way.

I hope these beautiful healing songs of love are happening in Japan between the broken rocks.
