Keepers of the Light

we’e been hiding and huddling
in the womb of the earth
gathering our selves
protecting the old ways
cultivating source

winged one came to tell us
it is time for our rebirth
the rebirth of a species
the rebirth of a people
the rebirth of the dreams of the old ones
the rebirth of our own hearts

flickerings on the hillside
gathering near
answering the summonings
and returning to here

the summonings
are bubbling up from the earth
and can be heard in her flowing waters
and soaring winds
and the raging fires
and the songs of the birds
and the songs of the whales

the summonings
are bubbling up from the depths of our own souls
and in the cries of our brothers and sisters
our mothers and fathers
our children

so many brave species
sacrificed themselves
at our hands
fallen to extinction
to serve as the summoning

so many brave souls
sacrificed themselves
at their own hands
falling victim to the hopelessness of suicide in the human realm
yet
fulfilling in the soul’s realm
delivering an unwavering message:

IT IS TIME TO AWAKEN, MY PEOPLE
WE ARE SUFFERING AT OUR OWN HANDS
AND WE WILL HEAL AT OUR OWN HANDS, TOO

won’t you join?
answer the call
to return to source
to end the war
between ourselves and others
ourselves and the planet
ourselves and ourselves?

YES
YES
YES

WE SAY YES
NOW
TOGETHER
IT IS THE ONLY WAY

The light is held by darkness
and the keepers of the light
are coming
and we are here
