songs of gold

  A yellow flower

(Light and spirit)
Sings by itself
For nobody. 

A golden spirit
(Light and emptiness)
Sings without a word
By itself. 

Let no one touch this gentle sun
In whose dark eye
Someone is awake. 

(No light, no gold, no name, no color
And no thought:
O, wide awake!)
A golden heaven
Sings by itself
A song to nobody.

Song for Nobody by Thomas Merton
Listen to Sarah McLaughlin sing Ordinary Miracle
