Speak

Speak to my soul
  let the waters rise
    ripple in laughter
      tripping on a journey

Speak to my soul
  as the wind blows
    rustling leaves
     rushing past, brief touch

Speak to my soul
  rain falls, washing
    poured out tears
      all driving a beat

Speak to my soul
  in the edges of daylight
    promise of the new
      coming slowly to be

Speak to my soul
  in the settled hush
    of nights coming
      darkness, rest, healing

Speak to my soul
  may I hear
    be open to the way
      as you speak
