Blackbird - Poem by Caroline Hope

When the blackbird sang
it was as if
God had opened the throat
and made a portal
through which He could float,
the most sublime of sounds,
the sweetest note.

Astonished, the bird fell silent
and closed his throat
and looked about with listening ear
unknowing it was himself
who raised the presence here,
himself the conduit for the heavenly song,
coming straight from Source,
a place where we all belong.
