Do you hear in the distance–
Like the drum of a chief,
Or an elephant’s footfall,
The heartbeat of a thief–
Past the splattering rain and the call of a crow,
That faint rumble from childhood few Salem folks know?
From the depth of my being I am urged to attend.
So I run to the window,
As if meeting a friend.
Push the curtains aside,
Open wide to the breeze,
Feel the rush of my spirit
With the swaying of trees–
Feel Creation as One
As I fall to my knees.

This is beautiful, loved the last line, it really resonated with me, especially the sensory examples. Just lovely.
