Long ago, the earth cooled from toil.
And the seas quieted.
The energy of love manifested in the stillness of before
It began deep in the womb of the earth with a small quake.
Like a shivering newborn, a ripple was sent into the sea.
Delivering the energy upon the sands.
Each granule washed with it.
Every wind, rain, coating the land.
Every rock, reed, creature becoming inspirited.
Every thing becoming an elemental.
Love currenting further in.
Like some great wave.
So began the dreaming of the world.
And the pounding in one heart.
Then a second, feeling for the other.
A new ocean of sister and brother.
Love in waves.
