but you have to seek it

and there is justice singing
in everything          but you have to seek it

by the side of the road
the willows are preaching     and the marsh

is filled with cattails drumming
the silver spruce is starred with snowdrops melting

and the hard plate of the sky
holes with clouds that are dreaming

who you are
leaks through to the place where you are standing

waiting for the future
that is coming

don't believe what you are told in the platitudes of concrete 
instead turn away from the old world that is dissolving

and seek the soul that blues in everything
believe in the heart and the compass of the mind

to travel far from security
trust in your intuition and your faith in beginnings

I tell  you we are stronger than we understand
and the world aches for our expressions of love

don't wait for the singing to come to you
instead go out and find the silence that blooms 

in these lines
these words         that are all about believing
Stars - Hold On When You Get Love And Let Go When You Give It
