An Awakening

Jamaica November 9th 1975

In new awakening
I saw the world with new eyes
Suddenly I became aware
Of the beauty of my surroundings
I saw the serene beauty of and ever evolving life
A life of perennial harmony
A harmony which before I could not see
Because of my closed eyes and ignorant mind

Keenly I listened to the birds
Singing melodious songs of love
Many heard
But few could understand
With aware minds and open eyes
We can all experience the culmination
Of nature’s exquisite exaltation

How spiritually moribund we shall all become
If we do not open our minds to gain wisdom
