(To be read to the Native American Flute song Dancing in the Rain by Don Fulmer)

Closer
Closer
Darling
Just a little closer

Howling
Whispering
Rejoicing
Terrifying
My heart

Yet still
It bids me
Sings to me
Lures me

Closer

Rain thrashing
My feet
Yearning
Dashing
Hesitant

Yet on my knees
Soul dancing
Wet with mud
Tears mingle

Primal
Crawling
Closer
Closer

The tall oak tree
In the middle of the forest

Abide in me
I hear the call again
Looking
Searching
Seeking

But where
My hand to the
Earth

The storm stops
Sudden
Fierce silence
Closer
I hear my soul beckon
Ah
Within
Darling here
My hand
To the earth
I hear her heart beat
Vivid
Vibrant
In harmony with mine

It’s pouring rain now
Soft yet torrents
Dressing and undressing me
I lie in the mud let the earth take me
Sink me
Melt me
Roots hug and wrap me
Cocooning me

It’s warm here
Inside the hearth of the earth
With the rain washing me
Integrating
Molding me

I am clay
Sleep finds me
For the first time in all my life
Time passes
Moments
Years
Days
Minutes
I may never know
But I hear the call again

This time I know it’s my soul
My earth
My body
My stars
My dirt
My rain
And
My sky

The tree delivers me to my feet upon the earth once more
And I cry
Tears
Of joy
After all the sorrow
It’s my time
Your time
Our time
Dancing in the rain
It sparkles like crystals
Holding my iridescent heart
The earth is my mother
The stars are my father
Primal drums beat
With each raindrop
Our hearts in unison
We become what we have always been
Nothing
Everything
The essence connecting
All of life

The rain dances
As I fall surrender
Accepting the bones of ancient truth
Both pain
Both joy
Our hero journey
Is to live embracing
Shadow
And light

This dance
Of my heart
Of your soul
Of the rain
Brings us into
The sacred veil
Of every lifetime
