Homecoming 1: The Language

It is the idiom of parable
Spells the difference between stranger
And citizen, a language of time here,
Mere curiosity for those passing through.
Travelling within the circle
Has understanding of discourteous roots,
A vision of mirrors filled with sun
For pagan eyes that know no Pentecost.
I who have returned burn words of silence
To hear the tongues of all beginning,

Reach oneness keeping birthrights to this earth.
