TURNING

© 2001 Laura Golden

 

 

Days are getting longer now
light begins to linger
the heart is growing stronger now
I can feel it turning, it's turning --
I can feel it turning around

Life begins its flowing
so deep within the branches
though nothing yet is showing
I feel the shift of chances
it's turning --
I can feel it turning around

And although it's too soon to see
there is something in the air
and it calls me like the beating of a drum --
So, in the still of the dark,
standing at the water's edge,
as the forest is humming --
I can feel it turning around

Tugging on the ocean,
the moon and all her daughters
so steadfast in their motion
now the rock is carved by waters, turning --
turning around

How brightly eyes are shining
like never quite before
we are freely redefining the
contents of the story, it's turning --
I can feel it turning around

Underneath the coldness
the buds make preparations,
the center of my soul opens to
rejuvenation --
I can feel it turning around

And although it's too soon to see
there is something in the air
and it calls me like the beating of a drum --
So, in the stillness of the dark,
standing at the water's edge,
as the forest is humming --
I can feel it turning around
