Her intonations are everywhere
like visible birdsong.

We are all out foraging
for this drenching sound
seeking Her clear expression.

Birds do not sing arias
they keep repeating a simple tune.
The repertoire of the heart is two beats
but it hammers together every life.

The Goddess is a Diva.
She knows we are all listening
in the right places
with the wrong ears.
Her voice is hidden in
every speech.

Like fledglings of love
we need but open our mouths
to pronounce Her name.
