The-likes-of a desert sea…


What is real? Ask the wind…
the wind can raise an ocean
and topple a gigantic tree.
All things pirouette in motion…
The-likes-of a desert sea…

But for all His power!
Has-He-ever-really been seen?

When all our efforts are mete
One-hundred per cent, what can we glean?
What is real? What is really real?
What is real? Ask, ask the bee secrete!
in His hives honeycombs heartbeat...

Ask the wind…
about; the flower…
about; his eternal invisible power…
the wind can raise an ocean
and topple a gigantic tree.
All things pirouette in motion…
The-likes-of a desert sea…
…The-likes-of Him in you and me.
