Calling Out

The calling out of names
The marching into a single line
The communication with the leader
The beginning of a wild struggle

The world has been travelling its rounds
There are many changes from year to year
The stars are older; the planets dance
The sky is full of energy

Winds blow from the East and West
Rain has been coming capriciously
Farmers don’t profit from their land
The cities are rapidly dying

I am happy that I have survived
My relief at the calming of the fire
and at the founding of a new society
is growing day by day
