Just Singing

by Emily Stern

They’re just singing
and the rest of the world is a reflection pool.

all a marionette following
like the angels sway

The whole wide world swinging with song
singing the wisdom is singing too.
humming a bass line, rustling leaves,

they’re just singing.

The mystical gardens do what they do. Encircling ground.
raising themselves, saying i am just a spark
the world in all her layers, dressed all her prayers
and they unravel.
and sometimes don’t.


denser and denser and stars come out a dancing around them

we are singing too at the foot of your throne everything rises.


I am just a spark ready to rise up.


and they’re always singing.

with the whole earth
they’re already singing with the listening waters,
the mouth that opens makes the whole world sing. singing a tune

looking at you, meeting my eyes to yours flying and standing it’s all a dancing stillness. inside and everything moving and we are your vision. saying where am I?

I’m seeing you

as we are open waiting in love.

the truth blows her horn
their trumpets and they come and they’re just singing and wings come to them and they are just singing at the times are changing.

they are just singing.
