Come spirit.  Help us sing the story of our land.  You are our mother, we your field of corn.  We rise from out of the soul of you.

Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That’s my utopia.

—Kurt Vonnegut (via therianthrope24)

And When I Rise

1.
And when I rise
let me rise up
like a bird
without regret,
joyfully.

2.
And when I fall
let me fall down
like a leaf
without regret,
gratefully.

Joyful little sister,

Nectar you crave!

All the sweetness

Of the flowers,

Is the love you gave.
