Songs of the dead

I hear the voices of
the dead.
 sing the songs of life.

Their songs of life
follow me.
I need to stop and listen.

Their songs are
in the breeze
that rustles the light of the stars

Their songs are
in the morning
when the sun says hello

Their songs are
 the choruses of calm and peace
dancing in the meadows

I hear their songs
above the red rock canyons.
 wafting in the wind.

Their songs sing to me
through the hawks that soar above
and the lizards that flit across the rocks

 they  sing the songs of nature.

It is the force that creates my soul.
Without their voices
my soul would be lost.
