I do
Want every night
To feel like the eagle in flight
I do
And if you feel like you might
Want to share this with me
Well, I beckon you
To me

This is an attempt to recover
The stone in the gold
And the ice, ever-crystalline
And the oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
That acts like it’s lost it’s place
In this warring world

Listen to me
Stagger into the light
Stagger into the light

The earth is child
Treat her tonight as if she were infant
And you’re her first springtime
Remember the human piece
Rips like tissue when trying to get the gift
This gift

This is an attempt to recover
The song in the reed
How it bends to become you
And the oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
That acts like it’s lost it’s place
In this warring world

Listen to me
Stagger into the light
Stagger into the light
Oh-
Stagger into the light

Cause I do
Feel like tonight could be every night
For forever
And I know you feel the same way
I do, I do

Send you eyes my way
We’ll recover the warmth of the dirt
And the shine in the salty air
And the oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
That acts like it’s lost it’s place
In this warring world

Stagger into the light
Stagger into the light
Oh
Stagger into the light

    General Commentquotes from joan

    This is an attempt to recover the song in the reed, how it bends to become you”
    Move from the closed eye of darkness into the open eye of light and potential. Rumi, the most famous of the Sufi poets, deals with this concept frequently. He describes the wild-growing reed as a potential flute full of songs and melodies. Everything, he feels, has every potential if one is open to it. The world is a constantly growing garden this way. The most mundane object becomes the most exciting. I marry romance and dedicate my life and death to it.
