In the no-time and all-time of the infinite breath, we learned again that we are starlight, created to honor the earth, to join her wondrous mystery and holy dance.
In silence and stillness, the abandoned ones crept out from the misery we’d made and told us the tale of who we came to be:
We were the blessed who could gather the wounded and neglected, the forgotten and exiled, the furred, feathered, finned, and wild-winged beauty of earth; who could love them back to wholeness, who could rescue ourselves by saving it all.
Soulfriends, companions, you sang back our starsong, our earthsong, the song that cries save us, love us, make us whole…
And all that was broken, healed. Rescuing, we were rescued; loving, we were loved…
Hearing our heartsong, we danced.
