i the rock (for maya)

by HolyTaya



upon reading of maya angelou's transition, the only words i hear are hers. posting this new moon morning's prayer .... adapted from On the Pulse of Morning...


I the rock I the river I the tree
Today the rock cries out to me
Face your distant destiny

Come clad in peace and I will sing your songs
The river Sang and sings on

The songs creator gave to me

When I was the rock and the tree
The river sang and sings on
for you Maya this bright morning dawns

Give birth again to the dream


released May 28, 2014
lyrics (re-arranged) from Maya Angelou's poem "On the Pulse of Morning"

During one of the moments I most needed healing in my life, I sat every day for months on stone and by river and with tree, reciting over and over again the full text of "On The Pulse of Morning", calling out ... with hope - Good morning.

thank you, maya ...
