EVENSONG

Evensong: Listening with an Awake Heart

In this season of radiance and release, we gather for Evensong, a time apart to listen, to sing, to be still.

Birch

Chose one low hanging leaf

heart shaped

Still attached to Mother Birch

and listen to all it has to say. 

The cue will be obvious when it’s your turn to speak

Its palm will fall on yours, face down

Blind sentences touching the breath of your hand

then whispering the language that gold understands

Choose one low hanging leaf,

heart shaped,

Still attached to Mother Birch

And listen to all it has to say.
