A Song of Joyful Silence

by David Kuenzli

In my oneness with all Nature, my Soul gives quiet birth

To a song of joyful silence 

For our precious Mother Earth.

I am one with the River as it courses through my veins.

I am one with the Sunlight

That helps to heal my pain.

I am one with the Wind as it blows across my face.

I am one with the Clouds

As they paint the sky with grace.

I am one with Eagle’s Wings as they beat within my chest.

I am one with Eagle’s Courage 

To face life’s greatest tests.

I am one with Eagle’s Eye as it sees life’s deeper worth.

I am one with Eagle’s Balance 

As he flies between Sky and Earth.

I am one with Mother Bear who seeks sweet honey’s truth.

I am one with the Wisdom

That she gleans from Mother Earth.

As I go into Earth’s Dream Lodge, I release and I let go

Of all that holds me back

From living in the flow.

I am one with the Snake who creates a better me.

I am one with her Magic, 

Shedding old to set me free.

As I watch her transform poison to an antidote that heals,

I learn to set aside the false,

Embracing what is real.

I am one with the Deer whose Peace melts hearts of stone.

I am one with her friendships

Reminding me I’m not alone.

As I watch Deer move in Silence across the winter land,

I learn to face my daily fears 

With an open-hearted hand.

I am one with the Trees as they fill my lungs with air.

I am one with the Rain 

As she washes through my hair.

I am one with Coyote as he sees Life’s cosmic humor.

He makes me laugh amidst the fears

Of this serious, aging boomer.

I am one with all creatures, all creatures great and small.

I am one with Mother Nature. 

I am one with it all.

In my oneness with all Nature, at last my Soul gives birth

To a song of joyful silence 

For our precious Mother Earth.
