As I transition from my "February love notes" and into this new month (my birthday month, 3/3!), I hear-feel those love notes singing the song of my BEing.

a single cell
found that it was full of light
and for the first time there was seeing
I was a bird
I could see where the stars had turned
and I set out on my journey
in the head of a mountain goat

under the shining trees something moving
in the green sea
I saw two sides of the water
and swam between them
look at you
in the first light of the morning
for as long as I can
