Child of mud and fire

Feb 19, 2015 | COSMIC WONDER Free Press 
freepress-childofmudandfire

  Mountains echo with the ancient ring of breath in spring I awake to a primeval voice released from the soil The woods are filled with the sound of silent delight   Emerging brightly from the mud like a child of fire A beautiful, fervent sentiment growing wild in summer The forest cracks with the sound of silent delight   Oh, please do, breathe the form in and out of you     Yukinori Maeda February 19th, 2015
