Life is a snowstorm of mineral flakes
falling as slowly as time.
Let's say that each moment is a note,
each person a song, all floating through
the infinite ocean of space.
Let's say the call of a whale
across a galaxy and on to places unknown –
joins forces with the cycles of stars.
Let's say the universe is a song
and your life is a note
that plays in harmony with mine,
and the song is singing forever,
carrying the winter birds,
the spring peepers,
the laughter of children.
Let's say we all listen,
and wonder at what we have created.
